VET Delivered to Secondary Students

VET (Vocational Education and Training) Delivered to Secondary Students (VETDSS) allows secondary students to gain practical skills in a specific industry while undertaking the VCE or VCAL.

Programs are typically completed over one or two years and provide students with a qualification or partial completion of a nationally recognised certificate.

Victoria University Polytechnic has delivered VETDSS for more than 12 years in partnership with 150 secondary schools in Melbourne’s west.

Our programs are taught by industry-experienced practitioners in world-class training facilities, and often include a workplace-learning component.

VETDSS programs & benefits

VETDSS programs contribute directly to the VCE and VCAL and most contribute towards the ATAR score.

Other advantages for students who take part in our program include:

  • gaining industry experience and employability skills
  • creating a pathway to further study (certificate, diploma qualifications) at TAFE
  • opportunities to develop effective relationships with industry employers
  • enhancing knowledge of employer and workplace expectations
  • developing the capacity for teamwork and leadership.

The following programs are offered for 2021.
