External Vocational Education and Training (VET)

External VET offerings for 2020:

The following VET programs are available to students on a GENERAL pathway in 2020.

It is important that students and parents understand that if a student chooses to participate in a VET program, the student may miss classes at MSC.  It is a condition of participation that the student keeps up with all aspects of his/her program of study.  VET programs count as a course/unit equivalent towards WACE and participating students may be allowed to reduce their course load to give them the greatest opportunity to succeed.
