TAFE at school (VETDSS)

Speak with your school's Vocational Education Training (VET) course coordinator if you would like to study with us while you’re still at secondary school.

Vocational Education Training Delivered to Secondary Students (VETDSS) offers various courses for secondary students which have been specifically chosen to provide you with clear career pathways after secondary school.  

Applications are now closed for the 2023 VETDSS intake:

See the VETDSS Course Guide for an overview of the courses offered.

VETDSS pathways are the perfect introduction into the world of work. You will learn practical skills in year 11 and 12 while gaining an insight into the needs of the workplace. You will attend one of our VETDSS classes one or two days a week and for the rest of the week participate in your normal school program where you will still benefit from the educational and social support provided by your school.

Success in your program can lead to immediate employability by graduating with a nationally accredited qualification, or you will have a head start in other nationally recognised qualifications. As you continue your study pathway to higher-level qualifications, your opportunities for further study will increase, leading you to be able to specialise in an industry or continue to higher education and university studies.

Explore our South Metropolitan Pathways Guide to see where a VETDSS course can take you.

We're committed to providing inclusive learning environments for students of all abilities.

We have courses suitable for education support students, however,  if you need classroom support at school,  your school is expected to send an education assistant with you. If you’re unsure about your suitability for a course, please discuss this with your school VET Coordinator and your parent or guardian.

Applications for 2023 Education Support programs have now closed. For further information on our Education Support Courses (Skill Sets) read the VETDSS Course Guide (pg 55 - 60).
