EVET Options for Year 11 and 12
TVET: TAFE-DELIVERED VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING With TVET, you can get a head start on your career by completing a TAFE NSW course, while still at school. TVET courses are available to students in Year 11 and 12 (Stage 6) as well as students in Year 9 and 10 (Stage 5). The majority of courses detailed throughout this guide are Stage 6 courses. Stage 6 TVET courses count towards your HSC, with some contributing towards your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).
BENEFITS OF TVET At TAFE NSW, you will gain work related skills and experience that is recognised and valued by employers. In many TVET courses, in addition to your theoretical training, you will also be required to complete a mandatory work placement. TVET studies can be used to help you gain a place in a TAFE NSW Higher Education course or at a university, by contributing to your ATAR.
Your TVET qualification will also provide you with an industry qualification. TVET courses may also contribute towards credit or advance standing in your next TAFE NSW course. By successfully completing your TVET course, you will gain two credentials upon finishing school; one from the New South Wales Educational Standards Authority (NESA), and another from TAFE NSW.
