One of the fastest growing areas of education in high schools is the Vocational Educational and Training (VET) Programs. These programs provide for students who are employment, TAFE or University bound. Students who participate in these Programs become far more employable and productive members of the workforce and better prepared to pursue further study in a wide range of fields.
Industry Links students successfully completing the Program will be able to gain Secondary Graduation and attain Australia-wide accreditation with the completion of Training Package Competencies.
Safety Bay Senior High School is a member of the PACT Registered Training Provider and is therefore able to accredit nationally recognised Competencies to students in a variety of VET Programs. In this area the school has the same recognition as TAFE colleges. Students can be accredited by the school with Competencies and Certificates for Levels I and II. A list of the competencies offered by each program is available on application.
Industry Links students can apply for:
- A variety of TAFE courses one day a week
- School Apprenticeship Link program
- School Based Traineeship
- School Based Apprenticeship (trades areas)
The Certificate qualifications form a major part of the selection criteria for competitive TAFE courses.
Workplace Learning (WL)
An integral part of Industry Links is Workplace Learning (WL). WL is undertaken one day a week in local businesses. WL experience is highly valued by prospective employers and TAFE Colleges. Students must undergo an interview to determine their readiness for work and therefore their eligibility to complete the WL course.
