Start training for a carpentry career in the building and construction industry while completing your secondary school studies

This program will provide students with the knowledge and skills to enhance their employment prospects in the building and construction industry. On successful completion of the VCE VET program, students have achieved approximately two thirds of the pre-apprenticeship certificate, comprising the certificate core and some stream specific modules.

Please note that the VCE-VET first and second year program is a partial completion of 22216VIC - Certificate II in Building and Construction (carpentry). Students undertaking the VCE VET program are provided with a Statement of Attainment.

Chisholm now offers students who have completed the first and second year during Years 10 and 11 the option of returning for a third year whilst completing Year 12. This option will allow those students to complete the remaining units of the Certificate II in Building and Construction and receive the full qualification.

Students completing the first and second year in Year 11 and 12 will have the option of completing the remaining units over the summer holidays to complete the qualification.
