Vocational education and training (VET) is "education and training for work". It enables students to gain qualifications for different industry areas and specific skills to help them in the workplace. VET courses are accredited through the
Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
St Teresa’s Catholic College is a Registered Training Organisation ( RTO 31297 ) and senior students are able to select from qualifications on the College scope of registration and from a variety offered by other registered training providers. Delivery mode may be face-to-face, online, off campus, or a combination of these. Details of these courses can be found in the Senior Phase Learning Handbook or the Year 10 Course Handbook, made available to students during the SET Planning process / Year 10 subject selection process, or to students when enrolling at the College, or by visiting the websites of our partner organisations.
VET courses contribute credit toward the
Queensland Certificate of Education and provide a pathway to further training. Completed AQF Certificates III, IV and Diploma may be allocated a
QTAC selection rank for tertiary entry purposes.
