VET Pathways Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses can be undertaken by students as part of their secondary studies. At Harvest Christian College some students in Year 10, 11 and 12 undertake a VET course instead of one or two of the subjects offered in the normal College program. These courses are typically delivered off campus and completion by the student provides credits towards both recognised VET qualifications as well as their SACE. Currently at Harvest some Year 11 & 12 students are gaining VET units of competency for the Certificate II in Retail Baking Assistance, which is being delivered on campus.

At HCC we recognise that in the past, the number of students requiring an ATAR to attend University is generally less than half of the student cohort. This, coupled with the ever increasing industry expectation for accredited training certificates, leads us to offer both the VET course opportunities as well as the necessary support for students to begin training towards their future career pathways.

School Based Traineeships and Apprenticeships are also a great opportunity for a student to gain their SACE certificate (through the VET certificate course) and to begin their working life (a minimum of 8 hours per week) in order to jump start their career. We encourage and support students who are clear about their career pathways and want to begin their apprenticeship while still at College.

Usually when you choose a VET pathway, you are choosing to close the door to achieving an ATAR. However, a completed Certificate III or higher may be used as the 4th 20 Credit option for calculation of the ATAR for university entrance.
