What is VET?

Vocational Education and Training (VET) enables students to acquire skills and knowledge for work through a nationally recognised industry-developed training package or accredited course. VET is delivered, assessed, and certified by registered training organisations (RTOs).

Undertaking VET may benefit students’ exploration of a variety of career pathways; it is not just reserved for a pathway within the trades (e.g. plumbing, automotive, and construction). Students can complete VET in a diverse range of industries, including business administration, veterinary nursing, aged care, or sport and recreation.

VET Recognition in the TCE

The information about VET Recognition in the TCE is provided to explain how Vocational Education and Training (VET) can be part of senior secondary studies.

This includes how VET contributes to the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) .

The Outstanding Achievement in Vocational Education and Training Award recognises demonstrated excellence in a VET program and successful achievement of the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) by Tasmanian senior secondary students.

Registered training organisations (RTO’s) provide TASC with student’s results. If this has not occurred, you can apply to have a competed qualification added to your Qualifications Certificate. See Adding a Recognised Qualification to your Qualifications Certificate.
