There are three ways to include VET as part of your VCE. If you complete a VET qualification in any of these ways, you will receive a certificate from the Registered Training Organisation (RTO) as well as credit in the VCE.

VCE VET programs
VCE VET students do vocational training programs as part of their VCE. Currently there are more than 30 VCE VET programs to choose from. A program booklet for each of the VCE VET programs is available on the VCAA website at:
VCE VET will contribute towards satisfactory completion of your VCE and also give you a qualification that is recognised around Australia. It can also lead to further training, for example at a TAFE institute. VCE VET programs that have Units 3 and 4 can be included in the calculation of the ATAR by VTAC. If you are interested in a particular area of work, ask your school VCE or VET coordinator how a VCE VET program in this area will contribute to your VCE.

Block Credit
If you are interested in doing a vocational training certificate that is not available as a VCE VET program or a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship, it is possible you may be able to count this training towards
satisfactory completion of your VCE.
Block credit is the name given to this arrangement. Ask your VET coordinator for more information about this.

VCE VET programs are designed to:
– Expand vocational opportunities for senior secondary students
– Link schools to industry and training providers
– Help meet the needs of industry
– Prepare young people for the workplace of the future
– Provide opportunities for students to participate in workplace learning.

How is the VET qualification translatable?
All training qualifications are within the National Training Framework. They are comprised of industry competency standards/ modules and are delivered by Registered Training Organisations.

How do certain types of VET course help me?
All VCE VET units, with a Units 3 and 4 sequence, make a contribution to the ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank), either by providing a 10% increment to the ATAR or by inclusion in the primary four subjects for the
calculation of their ATAR for those

VET programs with scored assessment.
What do I get if I finish a VCE VET program?
On successful completion of the VCE and a VET program students will receive a:
– VCE certificate
– A nationally recognised VET qualification
– Enhanced training pathways and
– Enhanced employment opportunities.
