VET for Secondary Students
VCE VET Options - VCE students are encouraged to select at VCE VETiS course as these provide a contribution towards the ATAR, either as a Primary Four subject with a study score or as a 10% increment like a 5th or 6th subject. VCE VET Courses are usually two years and start in February each year.

VCAL students must enrol in a VET for Secondary Students or if offered an SBAT - an apprenticeship course

Students who are not sure if they prefer VCE or VCAL are strongly urged to have a VETiS course in case they decide to change from VCE to VCAL at mid-year.
