SBAs (School Based Apprenticeships)

Students spend one to two days per week (or 12-15 hours per week) at the work place or in training. Students must apply as soon as possible to register their interest (please visit the Careers Office).

VCE students must choose subjects for 2012 as if they have not applied for an SBA in case they do not get the SBA. VCAL students must include an SBA as part of their program.

titleWhat is VET (Vocational Education and Training)?

VET is an important component of both of Victoria's senior secondary qualifications, the VCE and VCAL.  It opens up many career opportunities and offers nationally recognised qualifications that can create pathways to a range of careers.

Princes Hill Secondary College includes VCE VET programs in the senior curriculum program. The school is a member of the Inner Melbourne VET Cluster (IMVC) that offers a range of  VCE VET subjects to students. 

How does a VCE VET program contribute to VCE or VCAL?  

VCE VET programs are VET qualifactions that have been packaged so they can contribute to your VCE or VCAL.

Scored VCE VET Studies - are VCE VET Unit 3 and 4 sequences with a scored assessment.  VCE VET subjects that have scored assessment count towards the VCE certificate like any other subject, i.e. provide a study score that contributes directly to your ATAR, either as one of your primary four studies or as a fifth or sixth increment. 

Unscored VCE VET Scores - are VCE VET Unit 3 and 4 sequences with no scored assessment available.  Since there are no scores available for unscored sequences, the sequence may be included as an increment (the fifth or sixth study).  The amount of an increment is determined by calculating 10 per cent of the fourth study score of your primary four.  Further information is available in the Year 10 VTAC Guide    

VCAL students must do a VET VCE subject as part of their VCAL.

Students attend VET classes off campus, e.g. at a TAFE Institutute or another school.  Classes are generally held on Wednesday morning or afternoon. 

Some VET programs require students to complete Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) during holiday breaks or during term.  SWL provides on-the-job experience as part of the recognised vocational qualification.

Year 11 students can access information about the VET subjects from the IMVC website at www.imvc.com.au or general information on VET in the VCE at www.vcaa.vic.edu.au.  Information is also available from the Careers Office on Level 3.

SBAT (School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship)

A school based apprenticeship or traineeship is when you are released from school for a minimum of one day per week to undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship.  You will need to complete six hours of training and seven hours of work per week.  SBATs also provide credit towards your  VCE or VCAL.  Further information is available from the Careers Office on Level 3 or contact Maria.
