VET Programs for School Students: A Good Practice Guide for South Australian Secondary Schools
Training & Skills Commission
Government of South Australia
This publication has been developed as a resource for staff working in schools who are responsible for developing, accessing or delivering vocational education and training (VET) programs for senior secondary students.
This publication is a direct result of collaborative work between the Training & Skills Commission and stakeholders including the SACE Board, the three schooling sectors, training providers, industry and unions. Their work has focused on that there are adequate quality assurance mechanisms in place, and that pathways issues are a primary consideration in policy and program development. It has further highlighted the importance of empowering schools, students and parents to make informed decisions about VET in schools.
This publication includes information about:
the options schools can choose from to access VET programs for students
the legal and practical responsibilities of schools
how to identify local industry demand for skills
What to look for to ensure quality training arrangements
how to develop partnerships with training providers
useful resources, including who to contact with quality concerns.
