Studying VET in school

VET can help you kick start your career while you’re still at school, and can even count towards your SACE.

Erin, a school-based apprentice chef said “My parents are really happy that I’m doing the apprenticeship and that I’m still getting my SACE. I feel like I’m getting a head start by doing it while I’m still in school.”

How does it work?

There are a few different ways you can study VET while you’re at school:

  1. a school-based apprenticeship
  2. VET courses offered through your school
  3. starting a course that will help you get your SACE, and that you’ll keep studying once you’ve finished school

If you’re a Flexible Learning Options (FLO) student, there may be even more options available to you. Speak to your FLO case manager or coordinator to find out where VET could take you.
