VET (Vocational Education Training)
Dianella SC ESC offers a suite of Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses to enable students to develop industry specific and work readiness skills through Nationally Credited Certificate courses.
Year 10 students have an opportunity to complete a Certificate 1 in Vocational Pathways, which is a work readiness certificate. In years 11 and 12, after an individualised subject selection process, students may participate in Certificate courses at Dianella SC ESCC, North Metro TAFE and select schools in the North Metro Network. Courses offered include: Certificate 1 Business, Certificate 1 Retail, Certificate 1 Hospitality, Certificate 1 Agrifoods, Certificate 2 Building and Construction. These courses are specifically designed to prepare students for employment and further education and training at TAFE when they leave school.
Selected students may also be invited to apply for a School Based Traineeship (SBT). These enable students to combine paid work, training and school. Students at Dianella SC ESC have participated in SBT's in Hospitality, Retail, Business, Warehousing and Aged Care. Upon completion of the SBT students achieve a Certificate 2 or 3 in the particular industry area, as well as the possibility of continued employment.
