South East VET Cluster Portal Guides

The HOST school is the school or provider who opens their VETiS enrolments to any student in the region thereby ‘hosting’ the student who is enrolled at another school or agency. The HOME school is the school or agency at which the student is enrolled for the bulk of their secondary studies.

Enrolments in these ‘Home-Host’ School VETiS programs are coordinated through the South East LLEN as a ‘honest broker intermediary’ with courses taking place on agreed days of the week. Over the past seven years the South East LLEN, working in partnership with local schools and RTOs, has been able to facilitate agreements between schools on amounts of program deposits, timing of enrolments and enrolment cut off dates.

The Home-Host School Model ensures that smaller schools in the Dandenong area and throughout the City of Casey and Cardinia Shire can access high quality VETiS courses even though they may have only one or two students who are interested in vocational programs.

All VETiS course information is as provided by Schools and Providers. All units mentioned are indicative, units for VASS entry will be on the South East LLEN.

WORKS MATTERS

Work Matters – Work Readiness….. a new and unique resource now available

The first time a student enters a work place can be a daunting experience.No matter how outwardly confident young people appear, very often the transition from school to work provides a scary threshold –

What will the employer expect of them?

How are they supposed to act?

What if they can’t do the work that they are given?

Even simple things like what are they supposed to wear?

CARDINIA SHIRE SCHOOL BASED APPRENTICESHIPS

OVERVIEW

Cardinia Shire is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Victoria, located on the South-East fringe of metropolitan Melbourne.

The council employs almost 400 staff across a range of full and part time positions. Given the rapid growth of the area the council recognises the importance of channelling young people into the council to address future employment needs and to encourage students to consider the Career Pathway opportunities that exist within Local Government.

In 2010 with the assistance of the South East LLEN four students were employed as School Based Apprentices within the council. Based on the success of these students a further five students were enrolled in the following year 2011.

Initially the plan was to take in School Based Apprentices who would do a Cert III in Local Government however, because this would limit the students’ future pathways it was decided by council a Cert III in Business would be more beneficial allowing the students to work in various office environments.

HOW ITS WORKS

Students complete paid formal on the job training at the council offices one day a week, and attend on one other day visited by a registered training provider (LINK employment and Training) to complete the study component.

Students are given the opportunity to work in different departments of the council throughout the apprenticeship. to work in various office environments.
