Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) Queensland
Some students undertake nationally recognised vocational education and training (VET) qualifications while they are still at school.
VET is learning which is directly related to work. Nationally recognised qualifications are developed by industry to give people the knowledge and skills they need to work in a particular job.
Students can undertake VET at school:
- as part of their school studies - delivered and resourced by a school registered training organisation (RTO)
- by enrolling in a qualification with an external RTO - funded either by the department's VET investment budget or through fee-for-service arrangements i.e. where the student or parent pays for the qualification
- as a school-based apprentice or trainee.
