Vocational Education & Training

VET in Schools programs provide the opportunity for students to gain a nationally recognised qualification along with workplace experience and skills, while at school. Programs are usually offered in Years 10, 11 and 12 and qualifications are available from a range of industries. The VET system and the education system are distinct but complimentary. The VET sector is industry driven allowing industry to indicate the skills and knowledge needed and the qualifications are linked to job roles. VET is lined up to identified industry skill requirements and skill shortage areas.

VET in Schools is a perfect introduction into the world of work. Year 10, 11 and 12 students can learn practical skills and gain an insight into the needs of the workplace. Their school based VET program will make them a more attractive proposition for employers and give them a head start in their chosen career. What’s more, they leave school with both a Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) and a nationally recognised vocational qualification. That means that both their future education and employment pathways remain open. A student’s units of study in VET courses will be counted towards the study requirements for the award of the WACE and VET courses will appear with their other courses on the WACE certificate.

At Katanning Senior High School we offer the following VET Pathways:
Certificate I and II in Business
Certificate I and II in Sport and Recreation
Certificate I and II in Visual Arts
Certificate I and II Visual Arts with Digital Photograph as a focus
Certificate I and II in Engineering.

Students in Year 11 and 12 also have the opportunity to apply for Work Place Learning positions.
