VET in schools

At YMCA Education and Training (QLD), our VET in Schools Program is dedicated to providing students with the best start to their career. A VET in Schools Program with YMCA will give students the opportunity to reach their full potential and learn real life skills needed for employment. Our programs provide school students with everyday skills that will prepare them for employment or as a pathway into further study with YMCA or at university.

What is VET in Schools (VETiS)?

Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) is a program which enables students to gain nationally recognised qualifications while at school. Students learn skills and knowledge required for specific industries. VETiS can be undertaken in years 10, 11 and 12, and can count towards the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).

VET can also be undertaken while a young person is still enrolled at school through a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (SAT). Our programs provide the flexibility to fit around a student's busy schedule and is delivered online and in the workplace.

Advantages of a VET in Schools Program?

Our programs provide students with practical and real-world experiences to work within their chosen industry. Upon completion of a VETiS program, students may find themselves in a great place to keep working, go on to future study or even start their own business. A VET in Schools Program with YMCA will give students the opportunity to reach their full potential and learn real life skills needed for employment.
