FAQ - VASS enrolment

What VET Certificate types are available on VASS?

Enrolment, unit completion and assessment data must be entered into the Victorian Assessment Software System (VASS) in accordance with the administrative requirements of the VCAA and must meet critical dates. Penalties may apply for late data entry.

There are three VET certificate types available on the VASS:

  • VES: VCAA approved VCE VET programs that provide credit towards the VCE in the form of VCE VET units and nominal hour credit towards the VCAL.
  • NAP: VCAA-approved school-based apprenticeships or traineeships that provide credit towards the VCE in the form of VCE VET units and nominal-hour credit towards the VCAL.
  • VFE: Approved VET or FE (Further Education) qualifications, other than those that form all or part of a VCE VET program. These qualifications offer block credit recognition towards the VCE and nominal-hour credit towards the VCAL.

Some VCAA-approved qualifications are available as both a VCE VET program (certificate type: VES) and a school-based/part-time apprenticeship or traineeship (certificate type: NAP). However, a student may not be enrolled simultaneously in both the VES and NAP versions of the same qualification.

What if the qualification is not available on the VASS?

Schools should contact the Student Records and Results Unit at student.records@edumail.vic.gov.au
