Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses are an excellent opportunity to develop new skills and gain valuable experience in the workplace. They include a work placement and on-the-job assessment involving real-life, practical and industry-relevant skills and training. Students who satisfactorily complete these courses will gain nationally recognised qualifications.

VET courses normally involve 300 hours of study and are equivalent to two TASC ‘C’ courses. You can make up the full-time equivalent of 600 hours of study by adding on some TASC subjects.
Hobart College offers a wide range of VET courses. A number of them have specific entry requirements, including a suitability process which assesses your readiness to enter a certificate course directly or whether you first need to complete a foundation course in Year 11. Friendly and supportive VET teachers can answer any questions you might have about VET courses during the enrolment process.
