VET (Vocational Education and Training)

Investigator College offers a range of courses for Vocational Education Training (VET), through which students can attain nationally
recognised qualifications which prepare them for work.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is education and training that gives students skills and knowledge for work. VET operates through a national training system, particularly for the trades and other industries, and is certified by Registered Training Organisations( RTO ), like TAFE. School-based apprenticeships and traineeships are jobs that combine work and structured training through a VET provider and an employer while the student is still completing their SACE.

The SACE enables students to include VET credits  into in their SACE studies. Students can gain recognition for up to 180 SACE credits at
Stage 1 and/or Stage 2 for successfully completed VET.

  • 5 SACE credits for the completion of 35 nominal hours of VET towards a VET qualification
  • 10 SACE credits for the completion of 70 nominal hours of VET towards a VET qualification

These recognition arrangements help students to build pathways in the SACE through VET, and encourage students to complete,
or make significant progress towards completing, VET qualifications while completing the SACE.

Other than the VET courses offered within the College (VISAs), courses are typically delivered off campus.

For further details about VET requirements, please contact our SACE/VET Coordinator or phone (08) 8555 7500.
