Vocational Education and Training supports the delivery of nationally recognised certificates and assists students to prepare for the world of work. In Year 10 our work begins with career education, where we help students to explore job opportunities and identify their strengths and interests. Students also have the opportunity to complete work experience, to assist in getting work ready.
