Notice to Schools 35/2019 − 1 May 2019
School delivery of Get VET posters
Principals/Directors, Year 9 and 10 students, parents, VET, VCAL, VCE coordinators, and careers / transitions / pathways coordinators
The VCAA is sending a collection of
Get VET posters to all Victorian secondary schools. The posters are provided for use within schools to inform students, teachers and parents and guardians about the wide range of VET programs available and how they can support a student’s career exploration and pathway.
Delivery is addressed to the principal and will arrive at schools in time for Education Week (Monday 19 to Friday 26 May). The theme for Education Week 2019 is ‘Celebrating Careers’. We invite you to take this opportunity to showcase the valuable contribution that VET can make towards a student’s career goals.
Principals/Directors should direct this information to VET, VCE, VCAL, careers, transition and pathways coordinators.
Week of Monday 13 May – posters arrive at schools
The range of posters include:
Which VET are you?
Helping students discover which VET may be suitable for them by identifying a VCE VET program that aligns with their interests and career goals.
This is how VET is different
Highlighting how a VCE VET program is different to a VCE study or a VCAL unit.
This is how VET can prepare you for the jobs of the future
Providing information about how VET can develop skills and knowledge that prepares students for participation in the future world of work.
7 questions to ask yourself
Encouraging students to reflect on their passions and strengths, and to identify relevant VET qualifications and industry experience, that can support their long-term goals.
What can I get from my VET?
Two flowcharts that show how a student’s VET may contribute to their VCE, VCAL, ATAR, a nationally recognised certificate or a statement of attainment.
Additional online resources, including more posters, the
Get VET publication and success stories, are available at
www.vcaa.vic.edu.au/getvet . We invite you to take this opportunity to update the knowledge of VET within your school community by sharing links to the
Get VET webpages with teachers and parents through your newsletter and other communication channels.
