Vocational Education and Training (V.E.T.) Program

Vocational Education and Training (V.E.T.) Program

What is VET?

 Vocational Education and Training (VET)  provides you with skills and knowledge to perform effectively in the workplace. A VET qualification prepares you for, or in some instances qualifies you to do, a specific job.

  • VET school options range from a full Certificate or a school-based traineeship/apprenticeship
  • VET also provides skills and knowledge for work, enhances employability and assists learning throughout life
  • VET further provides students with an opportunity to graduate with an industry approved qualification which is nationally recognised
  • VET ultimately links students to further training options, providing a pathway up to six levels of nationally recognised qualifications. Access to university is also possible beyond Certificate IV.


Skill shortages and changes to the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) requirements have seen VET delivered to secondary school students gaining prominence.  In response to this, Lesmurdie offers VET Programs and Certificates designed to assist students to gain an industry – recognised qualification and to make the transition from school to work and/or further studies.

Students who choose to participate in these programs will benefit from the relevance of the course to their career interests and an improved knowledge of the world of work.  The programs also provide greater motivation for students and assist them in preparation for further education, training or employment.

Workplace Learning (ADWPL) – Authority-developed endorsed program

Workplace Learning provides opportunities for students to develop skills in the workplace and obtain credit towards the WACE. It is primarily the responsibility of the student to find a suitable employer to host them. All paperwork and insurance will be organised through the school and all participants are required to maintain a Logbook. At the end of each semester, students must also provide evidence of completing the required hours and of their knowledge and understanding of the workplace by completing a Skills Journal to gain unit equivalence from SCSA.
