Vocational Education & Training

Gain practical skills with hands-on learning

Vocational Education & Training (VET) courses give students practical skills and knowledge and provide a smooth transition into the construction workforce.


What is Vocational Education & Training (VET)?

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a great entry pathway for a career in construction where you can learn practical skills for all sorts of construction trades.

Forget about sitting in a classroom all day, VET is all about practical learning. With a focus on hands-on training, industry-relevant curriculum, VET courses prepare you for work and often lead to recognised qualifications or certifications.

Whether you’re interested in carpentry, plumbing, electrical work, or even project management, you’ll be grabbing tools and learning how to build walls, install electrical wiring, or even construct entire buildings.

The best part? These courses won’t take you forever to complete. Some can be finished in just a few months, while others may take a couple of years. That means you can start building your career in no time.


There are many reasons to consider VET

  • Focus on hands-on, practical learning
  • Courses are shorter, some ranging from a few months to a few years
  • Focus on specific skills for jobs in industries like construction
  • Access to industry-standard facilities
  • Opportunities for workplace-based learning and apprenticeships for real-world experience
  • Open to everyone, regardless of grades
  • More affordable compared to university degrees, with government financial assistance available
