What is VETiS and why should I be interested?

Vocational Education and Training is shortened to VET. Students can undertake VET in schools. So VETiS means Vocation Education (and) Training in Schools (VETiS).

Students can undertake VET at school as part of their school studies - delivered and resourced by a school registered training organisation (RTO) by enrolling in a qualification with an external RTO - funded either by the department's VET investment budget or through fee-for-service arrangements i.e. where the student or parent pays for the qualification as a school-based apprentice or trainee Visit

The QLD Government VET Investment budgets funds some VETiS qualifications. Only Certificate I and II qualifications are funded for VETiS. Students can access the VETiS funding for one qualification only. Students who wish to undertake a funded certificate III qualification should do so through a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (SAT)—funding for a SAT is available under the User Choice program.
