Vocational Education and Training (VET)
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, help students to explore job opportunities and identify their strengths and interests. Students also have the opportunity to complete work experience.
At Newton Moore SHS students in Year 11 and 12 are able to complete a nationally recognised certificate whilst completing ATAR courses for university entrance. Certificates such as Certificate II Skills for Work, Certificate II Aquaculture and Certificate II Sport Coaching are completed alongside general and ATAR courses.
School Based Traineeships
A School Based Trainee is considered a full-time student as well as a part-time employee with the same employment and training privileges and responsibilities as other trainees. At Newton Moore SHS students are being awarded a school based traineeship or school based apprenticeship where they get paid and receive training for a qualification in a specialised industry while they are still enrolled in school. It is an excellent way to help students build a positive future in many areas of employment.
School based traineeships provide students with qualifications or skills that are recognised Australia-wide, counts towards their WACE achievement, provides hands-on experience in a workplace and paid work.
