VET is a learning pathway available for young people in senior secondary school. It provides students with the opportunity to engage in education and training that leads to obtaining nationally recognised qualifications ranging from Certificate I through to Diploma. VET covers a large number of careers and industries including trades, health, business, retail, hospitality, tourism and technology. It allows students to develop industry-recognised knowledge and skills and then choose from a broad range of post-school options such as employment and/or further education and training.

It is important to note that work placement is a mandatory component of some VET qualifications. This enables students to apply their classroom learning and further develop their skills in a workplace context.
