Vocational Education and
Training (VET)

Leeming ESC students gain additional skills to perform effectively in the workplace

Vocational Education and Training at Leeming SHS Education Support Centre provides Year 11 and 12 students with opportunities to maximise their Secondary Education experience and gain additional skills to perform effectively in the workplace. VET Certificates and programs are designed to assist students to gain an industry-recognised qualification which can assist in their transition from school to work and/ or further studies at TAFE or other providers.

Through our school Person Centred “My Plan” process, students and their families participate in planning for their future life after school. The ‘my plan’ is a living document that guides the student towards appropriate pathways to take in order to achieve their goals and aspirations. This may include Nationally Recognised Certificate Courses and School Based Traineeships.

School based traineeships are sought for students demonstrating appropriate attitudes, skills and interest in particular industry areas.

Students Have enrolled in external TAFE Certificates and Skillsets programs in Logistics, Construction, Community Services, Painting and Decorating and Horticulture.

Some students attend TAFE one day a week with support from school staff if required, whilst others receive training at school through an auspicing arrangement. These school based Certificate courses include Certificate I in Leadership and Certificate I in Agrifoods.

Certificate courses run through our school are delivered and assessed by teachers who have completed their Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and have recent industry experience and knowledge.

All students who achieve VET units of competency in accordance with the requirements of the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) as part of their school program have these competencies recorded on their WASSA and/or WACE.

Our ultimate goal in all VET programs offered at Leeming SHS Education Support Centre is to have each student in the best possible position to move into entry level employment and further study upon leaving school.
