Introduction
Dear Student,

Welcome to senior schooling pathways.

Our program offers MacGregor students a diverse range of pathways though your
journey at senior school. The pathways course offering aligns to workforce skills,
tertiary education and social readiness for your next step.

The aim of our senior schooling pathways at MacGregor State High School is for each
student to achieve a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and to give every
student an opportunity to "be the best we can be". Students must consider the
combination of subjects, commitment to study and future career goals when
nominating subjects for Year 11 and Year 12.

MacGregor State High School offers students a broad range of pathway options for
students to undertake throughout their senior phase of learning including Certificate I,
II, III and Diploma courses delivered onsite at MacGregor, School-based
apprenticeships and traineeships (SAT), TAFE and external Registered Training
Organisations (RTO) course offerings.

MacGregor State High School has created productive partnerships with our TAFE and
external RTO partners to deliver exceptional learning programs, real life opportunities
and experiences for our students.

What makes us the best we can be? Our community engagement, a diverse learning
program offering that meets the labour market and bundled dual qualification
certificates optimising learning and pathways. We look forward to supporting you and

VET Myth busting
 Myth 1: University graduates earn
 more than VET Graduates.

 Fact: University and VET both offer a wide range of qualifications that lead
 to a wide range of salaries. The salary you earn is a result of your qualification
 and what you do with it – not where you get it.

NOTE: To put this into perspective, the highest average starting salary for a University
graduate is $78,300 (Dentistry) (The Social Research Centre 2018). The highest
average starting salary for a VET Graduate is $91,000 (Certificate IV in Hazardous
areas – Electrical) (myskills 2018) (vcaa 2020).

 Myth 2: There are fewer job
 opportunities for VET graduates.

 Fact: More than half of all new jobs projected to be created by 2024
 will be achievable with a VET qualification.

NOTE: 57% of new jobs projected by 2024 will be achievable with a VET qualification
(Labour Market Information Portal 2020).
** Please note: The Labour Market has been affected by COVID19 and there is
information to help students, parents, education/training providers and job seekers on
the Department of Education, Skills and Employment's website **
Pathway Selection VET Student Handbook 2021 #whatsyourpathway - MacGregor State ...
Myth 3: VET is only for non ATAR
 eligible students.

 Fact: VET is for all QCE students. It is important to choose studies and
 courses that support your pathway.

NOTE: VET qualifications can lead to traineeships and apprenticeships in a variety of
industries, further study/higher education and/or work outcomes. (QCAA, 2020).

 Myth 4: You cannot go to
 University if you do VET at school.

 Fact: Yes, you can still got to University if you do VET at school.

NOTE: VET can be used in the calculation of your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank
(ATAR) if you are eligible, for Cert III and above. If you do not achieve the ATAR you
need, or if you are a QCE student, undertaking a VET qualification may give you an
alternative pathway to University. (QCAA, Complementary Courses of Study 2020).
Pathway Selection VET Student Handbook 2021 #whatsyourpathway - MacGregor State ...
What is VET?
VET are programs undertaken by high school students as part of the senior schooling
phase of learning that provides credit towards a nationally recognised qualification
within the Australian Qualifications Framework.
Let's break that down:

1. An extra qualification
You can gain a nationally recognised VET qualification while undertaking Queensland
Certificate of Education (QCE). You receive the VET qualification from a Registered
Training Organisation, such as a TAFE.

2. Connected to the workplace
VET qualifications can give you industry exposure and experience in the workplace
that reinforces your skills development. This connection also makes for a smooth
transition between training and work.

3. Units of competency
Units of competency are the building blocks that make up a VET qualification. Each
unit of competency includes specific skills and knowledge.

4. Competency based assessment
VET students are assessed as ‘competent’ or ‘not yet competent’ in each unit of
competency. To be assessed as competent, you must show a consistent application
of skills and knowledge to the standard required in the workplace.
Pathway Selection VET Student Handbook 2021 #whatsyourpathway - MacGregor State ...
What's the benefits?
Nationally recognised qualification
VET is a national system with qualifications that are recognised and can lead to
employment anywhere in Australia.

Contribution towards QCE
VET qualifications can contribute towards your Queensland Certificate of Education
(QCE) and Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) dependent on your Subject
Selection.
Pathway Selection VET Student Handbook 2021 #whatsyourpathway - MacGregor State ...
Skills
Students develop technical skills and employability skills through specialised training
for a specific job or industry. Likewise, students develop non-technical skills that can
be applied across different jobs and industries. Skills including communication,
teamwork, problem solving and self-management.

Knowledge
Students gain knowledge through specialised training to understand and perform
specific workplace tasks. Students learn practical knowledge of how an industry works
which enables you to see the big picture and learn how to progress your career.

Employment opportunities
VET can lead to full-time, part-time or casual employment opportunities. This flexibility
may allow you to follow multiple interests at the same time – like employment, further
education and volunteering.
Pathway Selection VET Student Handbook 2021 #whatsyourpathway - MacGregor State ...
Financial outcomes
Students can earn while they learn - School-based apprenticeships and traineeships
(SATs) allow you to earn an income as you train, study and work. SATs help students
go places, whether that's a full-time job, a trade career, University, TAFE or other
professional training.

Education pathways
VET can lead to TAFE, further learning at a Registered Training Organisation (RTO)
or University – it is up to you and your goals.
Pathway Selection VET Student Handbook 2021 #whatsyourpathway - MacGregor State ...
What are the costs?
VET in Schools (VETiS) funding
Students undertaking VETiS, funded by the VET investment budget, can complete one
employment stream qualification at the Certificate I or II level.
VETiS qualifications funded by the VET investment budget are listed on the Priority
Skills List (DESBT Portal 2018-2020) by the Department of Employment, Small
Business and Training (DESBT).
These qualifications have been identified in consultation with industry as leading to
employment outcomes and are based on skills shortages and Queensland
Government priorities.

Who is eligible to receive VETiS
funded training?
To be eligible to access a VETiS qualification funded by the Queensland Government,
prospective students must:
* Be currently enrolled in a secondary school, in Year 10, 11 or 12;
* Permanently reside in Queensland;
* Be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, a temporary resident with
  the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency, or a
  New Zealand citizen.

What are the options
All students will have the option to either 'opt in' or 'opt out' of the VETiS funding.
However once a student has consumed their VETiS funding, they cannot use it again
whilst at school.
Other Certificate III qualifications may be delivered as a dual qualification at a Fee for
Service cost utilising existing VETiS funding under the Cert I or II.
Pathway Selection VET Student Handbook 2021 #whatsyourpathway - MacGregor State ...
Example scenario: to complete a Certificate III in Events would cost $2,304 per
student, however when bundled under a dual qualification with Cert II in Tourism the
out of pocket cost is only $450.
In some cases, a Cert III Certificate can provide an admission pathway to several
Universities. This can provide a meaningful pathway to either the workforce and/or
University.

How can VET prepare
me for the future?
The Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business projects that total
employment will increase by 1,075,000 (or 8.3 per cent) over the five years to May
2024 (Labour Market Information Portal 2020, Industry Employment Projections
Report 2019). VET can lead to careers in the fastest growing industries projected in
the next 5 years by DESSFB. (*** COVID-19 will have a substantial impact on labour
market activity in Australia. Previous projections can no longer be, as there is
considerable uncertainty around the economic implications.)

Health Care and Social Assistance is projected to make the largest contribution to
employment growth (252,600)

Professional, Scientific and Technical Services (172,400)

Education and Training (129,300)

Construction (113,700).

Together, these four industries are projected to provide over three-fifths (or 62.1 per
cent) of total employment growth over the five years to May 2024.
Additionally, strong growth in accommodation and food services is projected to
continue over the five years to May 2024.

Accommodation and Food Services employment is projected to increase by 91,400 (or
10.0 per cent), supported by strength in both domestic and international tourism as a
result of the lower Australian dollar and an expanding middle class in Asia. The Cafés,
Restaurants and Takeaway Food Services sector is projected to make the largest
contribution (of 77,400 jobs) to employment growth of any industry sector.
**Skill level 4 occupations (Certificate II, III or equivalent) are projected to increase by
256,900 or 7.9%. This accounts for 29% of projected employment growth.
Fast Facts
The VET student outcomes show that 84% of VET graduates achieved their goal for
training (National Centre for Vocational Education Research, NCVER 2020).

         65.8% had an improved employment status after training

         66.7% were employed before training

         91.4% were satisfied with the overall quality of training

         83.9% of graduates achieved their goal for training

         85.6% of graduates were employed or in further study after training

         90.6% would recommend the training

         88.9% would recommend their training provider

         63.3% of subject completers had an improved employment status after training
What is SAT?
SAT is a School-based Apprenticeship or Traineeship.
School-based apprenticeships and traineeships (SATs) allow high school students,
generally in Years 10, 11 or 12, to work for an employer and train towards a recognised
qualification, while completing their secondary schooling and studying for their
Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
SATs can help you get practical on the job training, a trade career, University, TAFE
or other training.

 “The difference between
 ordinary and extraordinary
                                                                    is that little extra.”

School-based apprentices and trainees, typically in Years 10, 11 and 12, are trained
in the workplace and with a supervising registered training organisation (SRTO), in
their chosen apprenticeship or traineeship while continuing to study towards their
Queensland Certificate of Education (Senior Certificate or equivalent).

To commence a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (SAT), a student must
have the support of the employer, the school, the SRTO, and their parent or caregiver.

The employer, student and parent or caregiver (if applicable and appropriate) will be
required to sign a training contract (with the assistance of an Australian Apprenticeship
Support Network [AASN] provider) agreeing to work together for the length of the
apprenticeship or traineeship.

It is anticipated that, prior to lodging the training contract for registration, the AASN
provider will ensure that the parties to the contract work together, and with the parent
or caregiver and the school, to negotiate a schedule of education, training and
employment (ETES). There must be some impact on the student's school timetable for
the program to be considered school-based and this schedule will show that impact.
Paid employment under SAT
All school-based apprentices and trainees are paid for time spent working with their
employer.
It is expected that the employer will provide 7.5 hours per week of paid employment,
which may be averaged over a 3-month period. The employer may provide the
equivalent of a 'day' employment as part days across the week.
The employer is expected to be able to provide 375 hours (50 days) of paid
employment over each 12-month period from the date of commencement of the
training contract. These hours are to be negotiated with the school and the
school-based apprentice or trainee prior to the commencement of the training contract.
A school-based apprentice or trainee can work additional hours or days including
during weekends or across school holidays as agreed between the parties.
Prior to completing a school-based training contract, a trainee must have completed
50 days of paid employment for each year of the equivalent full-time nominal term of
the traineeship.
VET Pathways
There are three different pathways for senior schooling that can include a VET
qualification course.

Pathway A – Academic Pathway (ATAR)
Pathway B - Blended Pathway (ATAR &/or Future Skills)
Pathway C - Future Skills

Students in every Pathway are expected to have an attendance rate of at least 95%,
engage fully in the program of instruction and complete all assessment to a satisfactory
(C or above) standard. Students who fail to meet the above expectations will have
their enrolment reviewed and this may result in cancellation.
VET Qualification, the ATAR and
Tertiary Selection:
Did you know that a Certificate III, IV or a Diploma is a pathway to University?

You can convert your results to a selection rank, which will give you an idea of which
University you can apply to. There are different selection ranks assigned to Australian
Qualification Framework (AQF) courses for each University and different requirements.

Some universities may require you to sit a Special Tertiary Admissions Test and/or if
the Certificate does not meet the English subject prerequisite. The English prerequisite
can be satisfied by achieving a minimum grade of C (Units 3 and 4) in English, English
as an Additional Language, Literature or English and Literature Extension in Year 12.

Certificate III - A completed AQF Certificate III awards estimated rank range 62-68*
Certificate IV - A completed AQF Certificate IV awards estimated rank range 68-74*
Diploma - A completed AQF Diploma estimated rank range 74-82*

Frequently Asked
Questions
Why doesn't the VET investment
budget subsidise Certificate III level
VETiS qualifications?
VETiS qualifications on the Priority Skills List are only at the Certificate I and II level.
Students completing Certificate III level qualifications is by participating in a SAT may
also be VETiS funded.

opportunities as a result of this training.

Students can still complete Certificate III qualifications that are delivered and resourced
by school RTOs, or are self-funded.

SAT Interview Tips
Job interview preparation and tips
for success
There are many different types of interviews, ranging from conversations lasting a few
minutes to several formal meetings, sometimes with more than one interviewer. The
interview process allows you to demonstrate that you are the right candidate for the job.

The following tips might help:
          Before the interview you should plan ahead. If you need some support at
          school to prepare and plan email the VET Pathways Officer.

          Review your research about the company and the position. Who are they,
          what are their values and what products or services do they sell/supply?

          Practice interviewing. Enlist a friend (better yet, a group of friends or family
          members) to ask you sample questions. Practice making eye contact,
          sitting upright and smiling.

          Video record your practice sessions. Pay attention to body language and
          verbal presentation. Eliminate verbal fillers, like “uh,” and “um.” Practice
          using positive body language to signal confidence, even when you’re not
          feeling it.

          Employers are looking for enthusiasm and a willingness to learn when it
          comes to choosing the right person for the role, so show that you have those
          two attributes in spades.
Make a list of key attributes or skills required and think about how you can
         demonstrate your strengths for each of these.
         The STAR technique (Situation – Task – Action – Result) can help you do
         this:

         Handle logistics early. Have your clothes, resumé, and directions to the
         interview site ready ahead of time, to avoid any extra stress.

The STAR technique (Situation –
Task – Action – Result)
Situation - Describe a situation you were in. For example, a fellow student was
       struggling with an assessment.
Task - Tell them what you decided to do. For example, I sat down with my friend to
       discuss how I could help.
Action - Describe what you actually did. For example, I gave my friend examples of how
      I improved my own research.
Result - Tell them what happened as a result of your actions. For example, his/her self-
       confidence improved dramatically and was able to submit the assessment.

You may have more experience than you think. Think about any part-time jobs,
volunteering opportunities or responsibilities you’ve had, such as babysitting, mowing
lawns, captaining a sports team, delivering newspapers, or tutoring other students at
MacGregor State High School. If it can demonstrate punctuality, reliability and other
attributes, be sure to mention it!
