MCIE's VET delivery in secondary schools programs give students' the chance to enjoy vocational training as part of their VCE.

Vocational Education and Training allows students to blend hands-on, practical learning with their formal VCE education, giving them the best of both worlds.

Our VETDSS courses can count towards a student’s VCE and provide a certificate or statement of attainment for Nationally recognised training.

 

Courses offered

So, how does it work?

The VETDSS program is flexible and can accommodate the needs of most schools through a combination of face-to-face and online learning either at an MCIE campus or in school delivered by MCIE or by the school.

  • The learning options can be combined to achieve the VETDSS program that suits the requirements of a school or VET Cluster.
  • Individual students must apply through their school.
  • MCIE offers high-quality teaching standards, practical application of skills-based training, work placement, employment opportunities through our extensive network of industry partners, and pre-approved pathways to higher education.
