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 **
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. SIT20116 - SIT30516 - Dual -Certificate Certificate II in Certificate III in II in Tourism Tourism Events Certificate III in Events VETiS funded Non VETiS Cost: $1,730 as per $2, 304 Out of pocket Priority Skills List Cost: $450
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* “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world" -Nelson Mandella

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. The VET investment budget will fund certificate III level qualifications for VETiS in certain circumstances. Industry bodies or local employers can submit an Industry Proposal Funding Submission to the department which must demonstrate local employment 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. (DESBT Portal, Training, Training and careers, Subsidised training and incentives VET in schools, 2020) Can school leavers access subsidised training if they have done VETiS? Students who complete a VETiS qualification at school, even at the Certificate III level or higher, are still eligible to access further Queensland Government subsidised training post-school, such as free TAFE for Year 12 graduates and Certificate III Guarantee. To support Year 12 graduates into work, the Queensland Government offers free TAFE in high priority areas. Eligible Year 12 graduates must enrol and start training in a high priority qualification within the calendar year after leaving school to take advantage of this great opportunity. (TAFE QLD, Year 12 Fee Free, 2020)

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!
