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

  • SIS30115 Certificate III in Sport and Recreation


  • Venue: Elisabeth Murdoch College
  • Time: Could be in the weekly timetable and or Wednesday afternoons 1.30 – 4pm

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. This program will also satisfy the learning outcomes for the VCAL Industry Specific and the Work Related Skills strand.
