VET - A National Qualification

Year 11 and 12 VCE students at Copperfield College can elect to study a Vocational Education and Training (VET) subject as part of their program, whereas a VET subject is a required part of a Year 11 and 12 VCAL program at Copperfield College.

Completing a VET course of study provides students with a national qualification at either Certificate II or III level. This qualification by itself can be sufficient to enter the workforce or an industry, but can also be an effective pathway into further study at a TAFE or University.

Over 300 VCAL and VCE students from Copperfield College study their VET in the Brimbank Cluster. This Cluster caters for over 1300 students from neighbouring schools who study VET subjects at schools and tertiary institutions in the local area.

Student considering a VET subject are encouraged to contact the College Pathways Leader at our Delahey Campus. Alternatively, students and their parents are encouraged to discuss the selection of a VET subject with the relevant Junior Campus Leader or Course Counsellor also.
