Vocational Education and Training (VET)

Glenwood High School successfully implements a range of Vocational Education and Training courses. These courses include but are not limited to: 

  • Hospitality - Café Skills

  • Information and Digital Technology


All staff delivering the courses are nationally recognised facilitators, who through their dedication and support allow the students at Glenwood High School to gain meaningful "real world" experiences both at school and through work placement. Many students who have completed their VET courses at Glenwood High School have continued to apply their skills through employment in cafes, restaurants, hospitals, accountancy firms, software design companies and at university.


Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Schools are programs undertaken by school students as part of their Higher School Certificate. These subjects are dual accredited where students may achieve a TAFE certificate and a HSC where the results count towards an ATAR. VET courses provide credit towards a nationally recognised VET qualification within the Australian Qualifications Framework. The training students receive reflect specific industry competency standards and the courses are delivered by a Registered Training Organisation, Macquarie Park RTO. A key success of VET in Schools is the integration of vocational options within the traditionally academic studies at the senior secondary school level. VET in Schools programs allow Year 11 and Year 12 students to:


  • Develop industry specific skills which can contribute towards their ATAR.

  • Gain nationally recognised VET qualifications and units of competency while still completing their Higher School Certificate.

  • Develop employability skills.

  • Gain an understanding of the world of work, providing them with valuable experience to assist with planning and pursuing their career pathways.


The VET teachers look forward to preparing your child for a rewarding career path.
