If you want to take the next steps to advance your career, re-skill, up-skill, or re-enter the workforce after a long absence, there are a range of flexible learning options available through VET to help you.
What is VET?
VET, or vocational education and training, offers nationally recognised training and qualifications across a range of industries such as information technology, avionics, building and construction, business, nursing, aged care fashion design and floristry - just to name a few.
As My Skills will show you, there are thousands of qualifications to choose from ranging from Certificate I to Certificate IV, and Diploma, Advanced Diploma, Graduate Diploma and Graduate Certificate. Unlike other learning options, VET lets you undertake partial qualifications, short courses, skill sets and units of competency, allowing you to gain the specific skills you need, when you need them.
VET qualifications are available through registered training organisation (RTOs). These may also be known as training organisations or providers. RTOs can be TAFE institutes, private colleges, adult and community education providers, or secondary colleges and schools. You can train directly through an RTO or you can earn while you learn through an apprenticeship or traineeship.
