HOW MUCH DOES
VET STUDY COST?
(PRICE TO STUDY WHILE IN SCHOOL)
By enrolling in this qualification, we'll help you investigate funding from the Department of
Employment, Small Business & Training's VET investment budget. If you're at school & you haven’t already completed a funded course, there's a good chance that you’ll be eligible for funding. The College of Health & Fitness helps you figure out your eligibility and usually, we have an answer within 48 hours. Connect with us & we will step you through the application process. We make it easy. You won't be tied into having to study, just by asking if you're eligible 🙂
ELIGIBLE FOR FUNDING?
HOW LONG DOES
VET STUDY TAKE?
Depending on which qualification you choose, the duration will vary & you may be required to undertake practical work experience. The good news is that you do all this while at school. You can start by contacting us, or telling your guidance counsellor that you want to undertake a VET course.
Our instructors will support you by phone, email or in-person to help you achieve your nationally recognised qualifications. In most VET courses you will need to complete some supervised work placement or work experience. If you attend face-to-face classes some of this will be included, but if you study online, you'll do all of this at a facility with a supervisor we approve.
WILL I GET A JOB?
Depending on which qualification you study as part of the VET in schools program you may be required, or have the opportunity, to undertake work experience in industry. Fitness & Health qualifications for example require you to spend time in a workplace to gain important skills & knowledge. Making a good impression during this work placement could help you secure employment in the future.
Vocational courses provide skills & knowledge you will need in the workplace & many of these skills are relevant no matter where you end up working. Everything you learn will help with your future work or study!
School-based apprenticeships and traineeships allow year 11 & 12 students to work with employers as paid employees. They can do this while studying for a senior certificate, but this is different to doing a VET course as part of normal studies. School-based apprentices/trainees will undertake a training qualification with a supervising RTO such as the College of Health & Fitness, usually in addition to normal studies.
As a school-based apprentice/trainee you will be required to do a range of entry level tasks in the workplace under the supervision of your employer. The skills & knowledge you gain on the job will help when you apply for future jobs that ask for ‘experience’. You never know, your school-based apprenticeship/traineeship may turn out to be a long-term job!
