School Pathways

Vocational Education and Training (VET) at Mount Alvernia College is multi-faceted. It includes the work experience programme for Year 10 students who have the opportunity as part of their career education and SET Plan process to spend three days “at work”. This helps to inform the girls’ research into appropriate future career choices.

 

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is education and training for work and part of the broader curriculum offerings for senior students at Mt Alvernia College. Students undertaking this direction will elect to take the Tertiary and Industry Pathway (TAIP). This pathway may include a combination of Authority subjects and Authority-registered subjects as well as other opportunities such as Vocational Education and Training certificate courses, work experience, and School-based Traineeships and Apprenticeships.

 

Mount Alvernia College  provides flexibility for students as they complete their secondary studies. Mount Alvernia College is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in 2016 (National Provider Number: 41391), offering certificate courses in Business and Hospitality. Students enrolled in the VET certificate courses develop the knowledge and skills to enter the workforce directly or engage in further study.

 

Assessment in VET certificates is competency based. Competency-based assessment is the process of collecting evidence and making judgements on whether or not the student can consistently demonstrate knowledge and skill, and the application of that knowledge and skill to the standard of performance required in the workplace.An important part of this programme is the opportunity to be involved with local industry through work placement.

Study at TAFE College

 

An integral aspect of this programme is the option for girls moving from Year 10 to 11 to select from a wide range of vocational education and training certificate courses at some TAFE colleges. The details of these courses can be found on the TAFE at School website or by contacting the Careers Office (Ext. 1226) at the college.

 

Completion of these certificate courses can give a head start into employment and further training.

 

School-Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships

Australian School-based Apprenticeship is an Australian Apprenticeship which is undertaken part‑time while the Australian Apprentice is at school. An Australian School-based Apprenticeship arrangement combines paid employment as an apprentice or a trainee, off-the-job vocational training and senior secondary school studies. 

An Australian School-based Apprenticeship provides senior secondary school students with hands-on industry experience, and the ability to work towards or complete a nationally recognised qualification, while they complete their senior school certificate.
