VET (Vocational Education and Training) courses are available for study by students as part of year 10 or the Higher School Certificate.
Almost all VET in Schools courses lead to nationally recognised Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualifications, either certificates or statements of attainment. Some courses also include work placement. These courses can provide a head start towards a career and pathways to further study. VET courses are delivered to students by Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). These can be their schools, colleges of TAFE NSW or other private RTOs.
All VET courses are either developed or endorsed by the NSW Board of Studies, for inclusion in a student's Record of School Achievement or Higher School Certificate.
• Board Developed VET courses (Industry Curriculum Frameworks), contribute to the Higher School Certificate and allow students to sit for an optional examination which can contribute to the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).
• Board Endorsed (non-framework) courses contribute to the Record of School Achievement or Higher School Certificate, but not to the ATAR.
