VET Courses and Pathways at Warrnambool College

A very wide range of VET in Schools courses are available at our school.  VET or Vocational Education and Training courses are demanding and require students to not only acquire the necessary skill competencies but also to manage their time efficiently so they can meet their normal school study requirements.  The learning environment is also different for VET students in that they learn their skills in a variety of locations.  These may include:  School, TAFE and on the job, which in turn requires additional organisational demands and skills for students.

VET Courses currently offered:

Automotive Certificate II; Beauty Services Certificate III; Building & Construction Certificate II; Catering Certificate II; Conservation & Land Management Certificate II; Engineering Certificate II; VCE-VET Furniture Making; Community Services Certificate II; Electrical Certificate II; Health Services Assistant; Certificate II; Hospitality Food & Beverage; Hospitality Commercial Cookery; Retail Makeup & Skin Care; Hairdressing Certificate III;  Media Certificate III; Music Certificate II; Plumbing Certificate II

To enrol in a VET course you must be over 15 years of age at the 1 April and be in Year 10 or above.  Employment outcomes are very positive for those students who have combined a VET course with Structured Workplace Learning.

VET courses of study are developed by industry to meet industry demands and therefore most courses require students to purchse specific tools and to wear protective clothing or use spcific workbooks to enable you to complete the course.

The school has a very close relationship with South West Institute of TAFE, who provide almost all of our courses.   As most courses are conducted at one of the Institutes 3 Campuses, students can catch the VET Bus provided by the school.

Many VET courses include attending TAFE during the holidays  – Attendance is compulsory and failure to do so will make it difficult to complete the course of study successfully.
