TAFE / VET, Work Experience, and UniReady
Students undertaking the General Pathway in Year 11 and/or Year 12 can select additional optional programs, depending on their educational needs and post-school aspirations. These additional optional programs are:
VET / TAFE Certificate
General Pathway students can choose to study a VET Certificate in addition to their school subjects. A VET Certificate is a nationally-recognised qualification offered by a TAFE or private Registered Training Organisation. General Pathway students can attend their training organisation one day per week to study a Certificate II, III, or IV.
VET / TAFE qualifications are studied in addition to the student’s 6 school-based subjects.
General Pathway students can choose to participate in the College’s work experience program. This program is known as ‘Onsite’.
Students who are engaged in Onsite will attend their chosen workplace one day per week for approximately 20 weeks of the school year (that is, 20 days in total).
Work experience is undertaken in addition to the student’s 6 school-based subjects.
UniReady (Year 12 only)
General Pathway students can choose to participate in the UniReady Program (only offered to Year 12 students). UniReady is an enabling program undertaken by Year 12 students as one of their school subjects. Upon successful completion of UniReady, students are awarded a nominal ATAR of 70 which can then be used to enter a wide range of University courses at most WA Universities.
In Term 2 of Year 11, students will be offered the opportunity to enrol for UniReady in Year 12.
