Vocational Pathway

The Vocational Pathway provides students with a broad curriculum which highlights the many and varied post-school options and provides them with skills for work, particularly in the trades industry. It allows students to gain dual accreditation, in both the SACE and an industry recognised qualification, whilst still at school.

This pathway is the most flexible and may suit students who wish to enter TAFE, the Defence Force or employment. Students need to consult the TAFE guides or Defence Force entry requirements for pre-requisites.

Students studying within the Vocational Pathway are able to:

  • Achieve SACE and VET qualifications
  • Transition to university study by -
  • completing a certificate IV qualification 
  • applying for foundation studies
  • completing the Special Tertiary Admittance Test (STAT)
