Emmaus Christian College's Vocational Education Training (VET) Program offers senior students the opportunity to enhance their future career options by studying a nationally recognised qualification whilst completing their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).
A VET pathway is designed to accommodate students who have a vocational focus, it is particularly suited to students who enjoy a hands-on approach to their learning, and is a valuable choice for students interested in apprenticeship or traineeship opportunities.
A VET course is a nationally accredited certification that equips students with employability skills, industry recognised training and qualifications to begin their career, setting them up to apply for entry-level positions in their chosen career field. For example, a student looking to be an Electrician could study a Certificate II Electrotechnology and on completion, be apprenticeship-ready.
There are many VET courses available and include industries such as:
Agriculture and Horticulture
Allied Health - Child Care, Aged Care and Disability Care
Christian Ministry (Veta Morphus)
Conservation and Land Management
Fashion and Design
Hairdressing and Beauty
Information Technology and Digital Media
Sport, Fitness and Recreation
VET Student Testimonials
“VET helped me find what I was passionate about and I am so excited for what's ahead as I learn and grow in my abilities as a Hairdresser.”

“Maddie said, "My experience with VET was very successful as I have been employed as an Assistant Educator at a childcare through the completion of my Certificate III VET course. The course itself required a lot of hard work and commitment, especially with COVID restrictions in place throughout the year."”
