Vocational Education & Training (VET)

Hope Christian College recognises that providing VET options may assist students to complete their SACE while investigating career pathways. We understand that every student has different talents, aspirations and goals for the future. Hope Christian College is committed to working with individual students and their families to assist them in developing their talents and achieving their goals.

VET courses can be undertaken by students as part of their secondary studies. Completion of competencies by the student provides credit towards a recognised VET qualification. There are many areas to choose from: automotive, hair & beauty, community services, construction, hospitality, business, horticulture, health services, engineering etc.

At Hope Christian College students in Year 11 and 12 may undertake a VET course instead of one of the school subjects offered. Universities may accept a completed Certificate III as a Stage 2 subject for university entrance to count towards an ATAR.

As a VET course may require a student to be off campus, the student may miss lessons from the school subjects they are studying. Consequently, the student must have good organisational and time management skills and must be able to provide evidence of these skills to be considered for a VET pathway.

VET courses offered at Hope Christian College:

  • Certificate III Sport & Recreation
  • Certificate III Early Childhood Education
  • Certificate III Christian Ministry (Vetamorphus)
