The College is committed to providing students with affordable Vocational Education & Training options. A range of fees apply in accordance with the type and length of course and Government subsidies may be applicable. It's important to discuss this with your home school VET Leader.
Trainees are encouraged to consult with their home school and specialised school sector industry engagement consultants, along with the College’s Industry Connect Consultant to assist in gaining an apprenticeship. Opportunities are disseminated to students and home schools on a weekly basis. Students are also encouraged to seek their own apprenticeships and through a combination of both, most students are successful by the end of their time at the College.
Experience shows that our program will give you an advantage. We provide you with the skills and opportunities – but we don’t give you the apprenticeship – only you can guarantee that!
