Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) – Queensland
Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) is a program that enables students to gain nationally recognised qualifications while at school. Students learn skills and knowledge required for specific industries such as becoming a Remote Pilot (Drones)
VETiS can be undertaken in years 10, 11 and 12, and can count towards the Queensland Certificate of Education.
VET can also be undertaken while a young person is still enrolled at school through a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (SAT).
1. Schools—many schools are also registered training organisations (school RTOs) and deliver VETiS training to students. The majority of VETiS training in Queensland is delivered and resourced by schools RTOs.
2. Training (VET investment budget)—provides funding to an RTO such as Specialised Careers Solutions (RTO 32292) that is approved by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training as a pre-qualified supplier (PQS).
Students undertaking VETiS, which is funded and delivered by a school RTO or self-funded, can undertake any qualification across a range of industries. This includes Certificate III or higher level qualifications
