Information about external VET training opportunities usually becomes available from mid-July. Students can access a range of courses and qualifications in industries where skill shortages have been identified. This includes opportunities to complete school-based traineeships or pre-apprenticeship qualifications, introducing students to a range of trade pathways. Some training organisations also offer fee-paying places to school students. These costs will be the responsibility of parents.
As a guide, the following VET opportunities were accessed by Ashdale Secondary College students in 2017. We anticipate these will be similar in 2018.

It is important that students and parents understand that if a student chooses to participate in an external VET program, the student may miss classes at Ashdale Secondary College. It is a condition of participation that the student keeps up with all aspects of his/her program of study.
