Vocational Education Training

Vocational Education Training (VET) is a way to experience the world of work in a range of occupations while still at school. 

Students develop industry specific related skills through the job learning at school or with another training provider and, on the job learning at one or more workplaces (work experience).  Credit for completion counts towards the VET Certificate and completing their SACE Certificate.

Salisbury East High School is a member of the Northern Adelaide State Secondary Schools Alliance. Northern Schools form this alliance and work together to maximize learning opportunities and career pathways for our students by delivering Nationally Recognized units of VET including Automotive, Construction, Electro technology, Hospitality, and Hair and Beauty.  Salisbury East students attend their chosen course one day a week and are responsible for their own transportation to and from their course.

Information about Northern Adelaide VET courses is distributed in Term 3. Students must complete a written application, aptitude test and a final interview in order to be considered for their course. A small fee will need to be paid by families, however, most of the course is subsidised by the school.

To find out more information about the courses offered at schools in the Northern Area please click on the link below. There is detailed information about the courses as well as several videos that provide relevant information.

NASSSA Pathways 

Another form of training is a School Based Apprenticeship.  Students participating in an Australian School-Based Apprenticeship complete their nationally recognized VET qualification, are paid while training, complete the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE), and may proceed to continued employment, further training or education.  Our school has Apprenticeship Brokers who can assist students with the organization of this type of training.

 Other opportunities provided by SEHS

  • Meeting and developing a career plan with Apprenticeship Brokers
  • Attending TAFE short courses designed to provide a ‘taster’ of a particular training area, or to simply engage students in learning outside of the school environment
  • Participating in work experience e.g. Year 10 students may choose to participate in a five-day work experience program as part of the SACE Stage 1 Personal Learning Plan

For more information on VET and other school-based opportunities, contact our Pathways Coordinator, Mel McGie, via the contact form or by sending an email to: Mel.McGie68@schools.sa.edu.au
