Vocational Education and Training (VET)

At Montague School we offer VET qualifications to our students from a range of industry areas.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is an important part of many students’ senior secondary education. They can do VET as part of the Victorian Pathways Certificate (VPC).

Successful completion of VET can provide students with:
  • The award of the qualification or a statement of attainment issued by a registered training organisation (RTO) or TAFE
  • A Statement of Results issued by the VCAA outlining the Units of Competency completed
  • A VPC certificate issued by the VCAA
  • Pathways into employment and/or further VET qualifications or training
  • Workplace experience gained through structured workplace learning.
Students value VET because it:
  • Allows them to combine general and vocational studies which for many, provides a practical focus in a range of industry areas
  • Provides direct experience of business and industry
  • Enables them to explore training in areas that will enhance their pathway choices.
Employers value VET because it:
  • Contributes to the development of entry level skills for their industry
  • Provides students with a practical and focused introduction to workplace requirements
  • Enhances the employability of students
  • Enables industry to contribute to educational programs in schools
  • Enables industry to participate in local community networks.
