VET in schools multiplies opportunities for students.  They enable students to complete a nationally recognised vocational qualification as well as contribute towards their VCE or VCAL Certificate. Classroom learning is combined with structured hands-on training and practice in industry. The aims of this program are to provide access to a range of potential career paths within the world of commerce and provide training & skills development for the achievement of competence in the business sector in areas such as front office management.
