Workplace Learning is an integral part of all VET programs and supports students in making a successful transition to employment or further training. Local employers are very supportive of our workplace learning program often utilising the program to source future employees.

The VET programs are coordinated and delivered by a highly dedicated team of VET Trainers/Assessors. Each staff member has additional qualifications in training and assessment, a qualification in the industry area and a wealth of knowledge and experience to ensure delivery of current industry practices.
