VET in Schools (VETiS)

Chisholm works closely with schools across south-east Melbourne to deliver Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VET in Schools or VETiS) programs.

VETiS lets Years 10, 11 and 12 students undertake career-focussed training while remaining at secondary school.

A VETiS qualification can assist you to move onto an apprenticeship, other employment or further study. You can even commence a part-time apprenticeship as part of your studies.

If you’re a student or parent of a student interested in undertaking a VETiS course, talk to your school.

School-Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships

School-Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs) enable students to combine a senior secondary school certificate with part-time employment and training.

Like other apprentices and trainees, a school-based apprentice or trainee must have a training contract with an employer and is paid for his or her work by the employer.

School-based apprentices or trainees must be over 15 years old and enrolled in a VCE or VCAL program.

The secondary school must acknowledge and endorse a training plan to ensure the training will contribute appropriately to their secondary school studies.

Apprenticeships and traineeships attract government funding and tuition fees are determined by Chisholm and published on relevant course pages on this website.
