 VET VCE Subjects (Vocational Education and Training)

Princes Hill Secondary College includes vocational studies in the senior curriculum program. The College is a member of the Inner Melbourne VET Cluster (IMVC) that offers twenty-five VCE VET subjects to students. Students enrol through the IMVC into these subjects.

VCE VET subjects that have scored assessment count towards the VCE certificate like any other subject. If a subject is unscored (no examination) the subject will attract a block credit score of 10% of the average of the primary four. Students attend VET classes at the campuses of various inner Melbourne schools. Classes are generally on Wednesday morning or afternoon. The College will run VET Digital Media units 1-4 and VET Hospitality units 1-2 on campus in 2012. All other VET subjects are off campus.

 VET in the VCE allows students to combine vocational studies with their general education curriculum. The VET component of their studies gives them credit towards nationally recognised VET qualifications at Certificate II or III level.

Many VET subjects require students to complete Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) during some holiday breaks. This SWL provides on-the-job experience as part of the recognised vocational

A handbook of VET courses offered in 2015 will be distributed to all Year 10 students. Year 11 students can access information about the VET subjects from the IMVC website at, or general information on VET in the VCE at

 What are the advantages of doing VET while at school?

   You will develop the skills and knowledge wanted by employers, increasing your employment opportunities

   You can explore possible areas of interest which may assist when making decisions about further study and career choices.

   It may make school more fun because you can see how learning is relevant to what you will actually do when you finish school.

   On satisfactory completion, you will gain a nationally recognised qualification (Certificate) or if partially completed, a Statement of Attainment of units completed.

Information about VET subjects can be found in the IMVC VET 2020 Handbook.

VCAL (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning)

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

SBAs (School Based Apprenticeships)

These are part-time apprenticeships. Students are paid as they train. The SBAs also contribute units to the VCE or the VCAL. 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.

Examples of SBAs that could be taken are:

Certificate II Agriculture

Certificate II Hospitality
Certificate II Automotive
Certificate II Retail
Certificate II Business

Certificate II Cabinet Making

Certificate II Floor & Wall Tiling
Certificate II Sports Coaching
Certificate II Warehousing
Certificate III Floor Covering
Certificate III Childcare

Students should see the Careers staff to collect SBA information.
