What is VET?
Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VET) is a program that enables students to gain nationally recognised qualifications while at school. Students learn skills and knowledge required for specific industries. VET can be undertaken in years 10, 11 and 12, and can count towards the Victorian Certificate of Education or the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning.
SELLEN administers the South East VET Cluster. This is a cluster of more than 40 secondary schools that agree to share resources and students in order to provide a wider range of VET options for students, than any of the schools could offer on their own.
To assist in increasing access to these programs for all students, SELLEN develops a range of resources each year and hosts regular cluster meetings for all members.
One of the biggest investments in the resourcing of this program, apart from staff, was the development of a VET Portal. This is a portal which manages school VET offerings, inter-school enrolments and attendance monitoring. To support the use of this portal there are also a range of guides for both Home and Host schools.
SELLEN hosts VET Cluster meetings each term, these often involve the sharing of new information, development and agreement of timelines for Cluster Schools and presentations by organisations such as VRQA and VCAA.
