VET Courses

Recommended Posts

Hi all I am in need of help to understand VET or INSTEP. I have a son aged 17 who is joining year 12 in 2016. can anyone advise me if he does a VET course how many other subjects preferably non ATAR will he have to take and would they be general or prelimary. we are hoping his GCSE grades will be enough to credit his year 11 for non vet course. Any help appreciated.

My son chose his options this year and there were 6 lines on the grid which included ATAR, Non ATAR, CERT II courses etc., My guess (and it is a guess) would be that he would have to choose at least 4 or 5 other subjects depending on how many days he would be at TAFE , one of which will have to be English, Maths won't be compulsory but that are different Maths courses offered .... but it is worth contacting your school of choice as not all schools offer every subject.

You will definitely have to speak to the school. My daughter is just about to finish year 12 and trying to do 2 years work in 1 year is going to be hard work even if you do get some credit for GCSE results.
