Vocational Education and Training (VET)

VET is TAFE certificates that students can study while completing their normal secondary schooling. Certificates II and III are studied to give credits for VCE Units 1 and 2 and VCE Units 3 and 4 respectively. Students can complete certificate 1 level to gain some skills for VCAL programs.
At Gisborne Secondary College we offer a wide range of VET programs. Some certificates are taught at school by VET qualified teachers while others can be studied by going to the TAFE one day week, while studying at school.
