VCE VET Electrical
Why I chose VET
I chose VET Electrical Industry to develop my knowledge and gain an understanding of the industry. I wanted to be sure that this was the right career pathway for me.
What I got out of VET
VET gave me opportunities that I could not find anywhere else. Structured Workplace Learning gave me a foot in the door of the electrical industry. It gave me an understanding of what is involved and what is expected. VET challenged me and helped me to be more confident in my abilities. By doing VET, I had an advantage over others seeking employment in the electrical industry.
My VET success story
VET opened up endless amounts of opportunities and new challenges for my future. Through Structured Workplace Learning I was placed with a reputable company, ensuring I would gain the best experience possible.
During the second year of my course I decided to do Structured Workplace Learning again which later led to me lining up an apprenticeship for the following year.
In Electrical Industry, being the only female in the class was something to be expected, as it is a more male dominated industry, but I chose to use that as an opportunity to challenge myself and prove my abilities are no less than the others in my class.
Gain as much information as you can about the course before you start. Ask as many questions as you can because the teachers are only there to help you. Take up as many opportunities as you are faced with and gain as much experience as possible. You definitely get out what you put in. So give it your all and it can only be rewarding in return.
