VET in Schools Programs
From 2017, UOW College will offer selected Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses to secondary school students that provide students with an opportunity to develop employability skills while receiving their secondary education.
The External Delivery of VET Courses for Secondary Students (EVET) program supports students to become 'career ready' by allowing them to experience a variety of professions through work placement. This also provides students with an alternate pathway to further tertiary study while they continue to attend secondary school.
UOW College offers the following EVET programs to secondary school students as part of Stage 6 or the Higher School Certificate:
- CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability)
- CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)
- SIS30315 Statement of Attainment towards the Certificate III in Fitness
- CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care
All EVET programs are either developed or endorsed by the NSW BOSTES for inclusion in a student's Record of School Achievement or Higher School Certificate. Successfully completed EVET programs offered by UOW College will also provide students with nationally recognised Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualifications, either full qualifications or statements of attainment.
