Studying a VET subject
At the DECV, we do not offer VET subjects as part of your Learning Programs. However, you can undertake a VET subject in conjunction with your DECV Learning Program through other educational organisations.
If you wish to undertake a VET program it is your responsibility to contact the relevant educational organisation and organise enrolment.
Why is it important to let DECV know you are completing a VET program?
If DECV is your home school, we work with VCAA to keep record of your VCE studies. In ensuring your records are correct, it is vital you let us know if you are completing a VET program.
There are a number of reasons for this:
- Your VET program becomes recognised as part of your VCE
- Your VET program becomes recognised as part of your DECV Learning Program
- Some VET programs can actually give you credit towards your VCE
- Some VET programs are scored and can count towards your ATAR
If you are interested in completing a VET program and wish to find out about whether it can credit towards your studies, please contact the course provider directly.
When can you let us know?
When enrolling at DECV, there is a section on your enrolment forms which asks if you are completing a VET program and allows you to provide the details so we are aware.
What if I enrol in a VET subject later in the year?
It is important that if you enrol into a VET program at a later date that you still let the DECV know. If this happens, please call and ask to speak to the VET coordinator on 8480 0000 or toll free on: 1800 133 511
What information do I need to provide to DECV?
We are only able to enrol your VET program on your VCE details if we are supplied with the following information:
- Full name of the Certificate
- Certificate Course code
- RTO name
- RTO code
- Full list of Units of Competence being undertaken
- Assessment plan (if required)
- Name of person to contact regarding results
