VCE VET programs are vocational training programs approved by VCAA. VCE VET programs lead to nationally recognised qualifications, thereby offering students the opportunity to gain both the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and a nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) certificate.
VCE VET programs:
– are fully recognised within the Units 1 to 4 structure of the VCE and contribute towards satisfactory
– completion of the VCE. VCE VET units have the same status as other VCE units
VET delivered to secondary students:
VET enables students to acquire workplace skills through nationally recognised training described within an industry-developed training package or an accredited course. An RTO issues a VET qualification. The achievement of a VET qualification signifies that a student has demonstrated competency against the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively in the workplace. VET delivered to secondary students is the same as all other VET.
The Islamic College of Melbourne will be offering two VCE/VET subjects in 2019

The VCE VET Business program is drawn from a national training package and offers portable qualifications which are recognised throughout Australia. These qualifications provide students with a broad range of knowledge and skills to pursue a career or further training in the business industry. The Certificate II and III in Business provide a pathway for students who wish to continue with their business studies into higher education.
The Certificate III in Allied Health Assistance (incorporating HLT33115 Certificate III in Health Services Assistance) provides students with the knowledge and skills that will enhance their employment prospects in the Health industry. These qualifications cover workers who provide assistance to allied health professionals and other health professionals with the care of clients.
