Delivering Vocational Education and Training (VET) to School Students
More and more, vocational education and training is being delivered to school students, either on site or at the premises of a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), and contributes to the achievement of their Western Australian Certificate of Education.
For VET to be delivered to school students, the school must be registered as a Training Organisation with the Council, or, as is more common, have a formal partnership arrangement with a Registered Training Organisation.
For a school to become a Training Provider it must meet the same requirements that apply to RTOs.
