VET Courses Off-Site

The school supports students selecting VET which is taught off campus. The list below is not exhaustive and students may identify other VET courses which can contribute towards SACE. Generally these courses are available to Year 11 and 12 students. More information can be found on the ‘Skills For All’ 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 as a choice subject. Students need to be well organised to catch up with work missed at school whilst attending VET courses off campus. Students need to have an interview with the VET Coordinator before starting these courses.

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure results from the VET courses are credited towards their SACE results. 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 in advance (some course fees will be refunded in part upon com¬pletion of the course).
  • Arranging own transport to and from TAFE as required.
  • Attendance at TAFE and work placement as required.
  • Student onus to submit Statements of Results to Student Services for accreditation to SACE.

    Northern Area State Secondary Schools Association:

    Students at NHS are able to apply for places in the NASSSA Regional School VET program in 2014. Applying for these courses does not guarantee a place in such a course as priority will be given to students in the area. Where places are available and students are able to travel to the place of study, NHS students will be welcome to join these programs. See their website or check with VET coordinator for more information.

    Other RTOs

    Students are welcome to research course details, location, costing and contact details of other courses to complete their SACE.

    Funding support for off site VET Courses

    Most off site VET courses cost money however the school subsidizes the cost to parents and students. In 2014 this was 80% paid by the school. This would be a fair bench mark for 2015 although the school contribution could rise or fall slightly depending on demand and funds available.

    Training Guarantee

    Training Guarantee (TG) is a Federal government initiative which pays 100% of fees for Cert II and 80% of Cert III for approved courses for students where there is a recognised labour shortage, who are over 16 and have identified a career pathway. TG students are required to complete 140 hours of work placement over two years.
