VET in Schools Program (VETiS)

CSTC / Embark College offer a variety of VETiS programs

Some students undertake nationally recognised vocational education and training (VET) qualifications while they are still at school.

VET is learning which is directly related to work. Nationally recognised qualifications are developed by industry to give people the knowledge and skills they need to work in a particular job.

Students can undertake VET at school:

  • as part of their school studies – delivered and resourced by a school registered training organisation (RTO)

  • by enrolling in a qualification with an external RTO – funded either by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training’s VET investment budget or through fee-for-service arrangements i.e. where the student or parent pays for the qualification


Certificate 3 Guarantee and fee-free training for Year 12 graduates Regardless of how it is funded, participation in VETiS or a SAT does not affect a student’s access to fee-free training for Year 12 graduates or subsidised training post-school through the Certificate 3 Guarantee – even if the student has completed a certificate III level qualification at school.
