Kew High School delivers an extensive Vocational Education and Training (VET) program. This allows students to complete a nationally recognised TAFE certificate as part of their regular VCE studies. Work placement in industry is often a component, and in most cases VET subjects offer scored assessment (a Study Score) at Units 3 & 4. VET allows students to gain knowledge and experience in a learning area that is of particular interest to them – this can lead to future career pathways and options. VET qualifications usually lead directly into further education and training and allow students to experience industry standard equipment, technology and training methods.
Outdoor Recreation/Sport and Recreation qualifications are offered through our regular timetable (Years 10 and 11), and through our membership of the Inner Melbourne VET Cluster we are also able to offer students in Years 10-12 a wide range of VET programs (currently around 40). The cluster comprises approximately 50 schools, and allows our students to benefit from sharing arrangements in terms of classes and trainers. Examples of programs regularly on offer include: Acting, Animal studies, Fashion design, Automotive, Media, Engineering, Hospitality, Interior Design, Justice, Music, Tourism (and many more).
Students and parents who are interested in the Outdoor Recreation/Sport and Recreation and VET Cluster programs should contact the VET Coordinator for more information.
