Vocational and Education Training News

There have been considerable changes to the regulations and acceptable methods in which Vocational and Education Training (VET) is being undertaken in Australia, and in particular Queensland, which we are grateful for. For most of our school based trainees, this has meant they are able to continue training, even if their work has been suspended which normally is not allowed. VET is also able to be delivered predominantly online without face to face contact, which is also not normally allowed. I encourage all girls undertaking any VET studies to make the most of this time to complete their theory work. 

There are several online courses that students could undertake completely online and they may wish to consider one of these while they are learning from home. Please contact me via email if you would like to discuss any ideas further. Below are some suggested short courses that students could complete in one or two terms.

Certificate I in Financial Services:

  • Available all online and with assistance from me.
  • 2 QCE points on completion.
  • A worthwhile course to help learn about money, saving and budgeting. 
  • Delivered through the school system for a reduced fee of $250 (retail price $2500).
  • Could easily be completed in one term, but students will have till the end of the year to complete. 

Certificate II in Tourism:

  • Available all online, support available from an external college.
  • 4 QCE points on completion.
  • A relevant course for students interested in travel and tourism events, and working with diverse groups.
  • Delivered through an external online system at no cost as fully funded by Government funding. Only available to students who have not used their VETiS funding already.
  • Will take six months to complete.

Students undertaking studies at TAFE would have all received communications that indicate that all learning is occurring online for this term. This means training plans have been altered to leave practical units till later with the focus now on theoretical units. I encourage students to keep up to date with studies and contact TAFE teachers if help is needed. 

As always, please get in touch with me if you have concerns or questions.
