Previously known as VET in Schools (VETiS), VET Delivered to Secondary Students is part of the Australian government’s framework, Preparing Secondary Students for Work. VETDSS allows students in Years 10, 11, and 12 to receive workplace skills and knowledge through nationally-recognised qualifications from industry-developed training packages or accredited courses while still at school.
VETDSS can be used in many ways to suit the needs of secondary students.
VCE VET programs approved by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) are designated as VCE VET programs and are integrated into both VCE and VCAL curriculums so that upon completion of Year 12 a student will receive a VET qualification and their Senior Secondary certificate.
SBATs provide both structured training and part-time work components. The part-time work is delivered through an apprenticeship or traineeship. VETDSS only consists of the structured training component. Both programs provide you with a nationally recognised qualification when you finish school.
For example, when you’re undertaking SBATs, you must complete a minimum of one day of structured training and a minimum one day of workplace based training every week. VETDSS structured training is delivered in schools and can easily fit into a VCE or VCAL timetable.
Successful completion of VET in a senior secondary program can provide students with:
• a VCE and/or VCAL certificate issued by the VCAA, and a VET certificate issued by a registered training organisation (RTO)
• two statements of results issued by the VCAA giving details of units completed in the VCE and units of competency/modules completed in the VET qualification
• an enhanced ATAR which can improve access to further education
• pathways into employment and/or further VET qualifications or training • workplace experience gained through structured workplace learning.
