Vocational Courses, also known as VET, are globally recognised courses that are equivalent to up to 1 ½ years of University. The courses are delivered in a more practical setting where you learn how to actually use the skills being studied by learning the theory then learning how to use the theory and actually do it practically.
Most of these courses are recognised by the department of immigration, international universities and employers. All of the colleges that we collaborate with are private, professional, specialty colleges that focus on a number of specific trades and qualifications. This allows your course to be delivered in a more specific, industry relevant way.
The great thing about vocational education is there is more than one way to be assessed, to learn and to study.
If you are finding it hard to learn what you are studying you can speak to us, your teacher or your college for assistance and we can look at tailoring the course to your learning needs or change you to a course that matches your learning abilities and intentions more suitably.
