VET Courses Off-Site

Nuriootpa High School supports students selecting Vocational Programs that are taught off campus. The list below is not exhaustive and students may identify other Vocational Programs courses which can contribute towards SACE. Generally these courses are available to Year 10, 11 and 12 students. More information can be found on the ‘Work Ready’ website

It’s important to note the courses are partly user pays and students would need to check costs, location of courses and delivery times prior to selecting VET through Course Counselling for a subject choice. Students need to be well organised and manage work missed at school whilst attending VET courses off campus. Students need to have an interview with the VET Coordinator before enrolling in VET courses.

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure results from the VET courses are credited towards their SACE results. Students need to bring ALL results to the staff in the Student Support area at NHS. If you are interested in these courses or wish to explore others, please contact the VET coordinator.

Requirements for students who access courses off campus:

  • Student onus to research details, location, costing, contact details, then submit a VET counselling form at their counselling interview.
  • Being able to balance VET commitments with other subjects and complete all work set in every lesson.
  • Paying TAFE fees as invoiced by the school.
  • Arranging own transport to and from TAFE as required.
  • Attendance at TAFE and work placement as required.
