Receive Your High School Graduation Certificate (WACE) & Get Job Ready

What is VET??

Vocational Education and Training, or VET as it’s commonly known, in schools engages students in work-related learning built on strategic partnerships between schools, registered training organisations, business, industry and the wider community.

Completion of VET qualifications provides students with credit towards a nationally recognised vocational qualification within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). A broad range of post-school vocational options and pathways are available through the study of VET.

The national framework for vocational learning and VET delivered to secondary students defines VET as:
‘…enables students to acquire workplace skills through nationally recognised training described within an industry-developed training package or an accredited course. A VET qualification is issued by an RTO. The achievement of a VET qualification signifies that a student has demonstrated competency against the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively in the workplace.’

For Year 11 and 12 students wanting to successfully complete their secondary education but are not aiming for an ATAR for university entrance, Aranmore offers an alternative pathway to achieve their Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE). WACE is the official certificate received from the government upon successfully graduating from Year 12.

The Vocational Education and Training Department offers students a variety of opportunities to complement or act as an alternative pathway to mainstream education programs. The VET program is ideally suited to those students planning to enter a State Training Provider (TAFE) or gain an apprenticeship after Year 11 or 12.

Students are offered a number of certificates courses that are endorsed by Training WA to complete and gain skills and qualifications. Some VET students participate in Workplace Learning (WPL), which allows students to gain insight into selected career paths and experience the requirements of working within this industry or profession.


VET courses offered on campus at Aranmore through our Registered Training Organisation (RTO) iVET are:

Certificate II Workplace Skills
Certificate II Sport & Recreation




ONSITE is an external party that works with eight other private and independent schools to provide students with an opportunity to undertake industry-based workplace learning.

ONSITE – Workplace learning (WPL)

Workplace Learning is an endorsed program that provides an opportunity for a student to demonstrate and develop the core skills for work, referred to as generic, transferable or employability skills. Students learn to apply and adapt these skills that are necessary to understand and carry out different types of work.

Developing workplace skills aids an individual to gain employment, and in the longer term, to progress within the organisation or industry area in which they are employed, and to contribute successfully to the organisation’s objectives and to the wider community.

The program consists of two placements per year where students attend their chosen workplace one day a week for approximately 10 weeks. There is a subsidized levy of $650 for the program.

What is VET Delivered to Secondary Students?

Vocational Education and Training [VET] Delivered to Secondary Students is a program delivered to school students as part of your Western Australian Certificate of Education.

TAFE specifically chooses courses that provide clear career pathways after high school. They will give students practical skills and an understanding of what to expect from the workplace and, once completed, may provide credits towards other nationally recognized qualifications, or lead to employment.

Students enrolled in a VET Delivered to Secondary Students course attend one of the Metropolitan TAFE campus one or two days per week.

Applications are open and close in Term 3.
