Sport and Recreation
RTO Elisabeth Murdoch College No 21004
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 program is designed to introduce the student to the employment and educational opportunities within the Sport and Recreation Industries. The focus of the programs will be on developing the skills, knowledge and confidence to work in the Sport and Recreational Industry. Students will develop leadership and organisational skills through theory and practical sessions, in the classroom, the workplace and school events.
Course Code and Title

Structured Workplace Learning
The VCAA has determined that work placement is an appropriate and valuable component of all VET programs. It provides the context for:
- enhancement of skills development
- practical application of industry knowledge
- assessment of units of competence, as determined by the RTO
To support SWL at Elisabeth Murdoch College we have planned to provide students with exposure to a work environment through organized industry visits and through involvement in school sporting and other events.
Contribution to the VCE and VCAL
On completion of the program students are eligible for four credits towards their VCE or VCAL certificate, two at units 1 and 2 level and a 3 and 4 sequence. Students who successfully complete the year 12 Unit 3-4 sequence will be eligible for a study score which contributes directly towards their ATAR. Scored assessment is available for SIS30115 Certificate III in Sport and Recreation.
Students wishing to receive an ATAR contribution for VCE VET Sport and Recreation must undertake scored assessment. This consists of three coursework tasks, worth 66 per cent of the overall study score, and an end-of-year examination which is worth 34 per cent of the overall study score.
Scored assessment is based on the VCE VET Units 3 and 4 sequence of SIS30115 Certificate III in Sport and RecreationThis program will also satisfy the learning outcomes for the VCAL Industry Specific and the Work Related Skills strand.
