What is VET?
Vocational education and training (VET) provides students with nationally recognised training in job related and technical skills in a large number of careers and industries. Students at Ryan Catholic College have the opportunity to complete qualifications at certificate I, II and III level while at school. In addition, the College provides students with opportunities to use other training organisations to complete qualifications in other industry areas outside of school. VET also includes school-based traineeships and apprenticeships.
Benefits of VET

School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships
School-based apprenticeships and traineeships (SATs) combine school, training and paid employment to give students in Year 10, 11 and 12 an industry-recognised national qualification and points towards their QCE. Our students are able to complete SATs in a large variety of industry areas, including vet nursing, childcare, automotive, tourism and hospitality, engineering, beauty, hairdressing, retail, electro technology, building and construction, health and many more.
