As students progress through the final years of schooling, many wish to begin their training towards a vocational pathway while also completing their SACE. Vocational Education and Training (VET) is an opportunity for students to access training which contributes towards a formal vocational certificate (such as a Certificate I, II or III as part, or distinct from, an apprenticeship) which, under certain circumstances, can also contribute to the achievement of their SACE.
Tatachilla offers a number of VET pathways internally to students such as Certificate I Construction (D2C - Doorways 2 Construction), Certificate II in Conservation and Land Management, Certificate III in Conservation and Land Management, Certificate II Creative Industries (Game Animation), Certificate III Christian Studies and Ministry (Vetamorphus) and Certificate III Fitness. These opportunities enable students to receive industry level training while also completing their SACE.
Students are given the opportunity to access many additional VET courses including:
- Building and Construction
- Food and Hospitality
- Hair and Beauty
- Tourism and Events Management
- Sport and Recreation
- Interior Design
- Graphic Design
All VET must be negotiated and registered with the Career Development Coordinator who is also available to advise students (and parents) on courses available, and who coordinates work placements to complement the learning achieved through the VET training.
