Vocational Education

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is "education and training for work". It enables students to gain qualifications for different industry areas and to develop work related skills and knowledge.  VET courses are accredited through the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).

Siena Catholic College is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 30581) and students are able to select from qualifications on the College scope of registration and from a variety offered by other registered training providers.

At Siena Catholic College VET is offered in a number of different ways including:

  • Stand-alone VET qualifications (Certificate I, II and III) courses delivered by Siena Catholic College as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO)
  • Certificate III and IV courses delivered at Siena through external Registered Training Organisations.
  • Certificate and Diploma Courses delivered by external Registered Training Organisations.
  • School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SATs) which will allow students to work for an employer and train towards a recognised qualification while completing their school studies.

Delivery mode may be face-to-face, online, off campus, or a combination of these. Details of these courses can be found in the Junior and Senior Curriculum Handbook, during the Career Development Pathway Planning Process in Year 10, Year 10 subject selection process, to students when enrolling at the College, or by visiting the websites of our partner organisations.  ​​
