  2. support young people's transitions to employment, vocational and higher education pathways.

Other benefits of participating in VET include (but are not limited to):

  • obtaining practical experience from work

  • gaining familiarity on how workplaces operate

  • developing employability skills

  • developing and improving interpersonal skills

  • allowing students to explore the potential career path they would like to pursue.

Young people can access VET in a number of ways including:

  • Accessing training funding by the VET in Schools (VETiS)

  • Undertaking VET training offered by the school

  • Through a School-Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship

  • Privately undertaking training (Paid)
