Students in Years 10 or Year 11 have the opportunity to undertake Vocational Education and Training (VET) studies.  A VET program usually takes two years to complete and a School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship (SBAT) can be counted as one VET program.  

VET programs are nationally accredited and recognised courses, which count as VCE studies or form part of a VCAL program.  All VET studies have a compulsory materials cost and in most cases a uniform cost attached.

Some of the VET program offered at Wangaratta High School is offered at the School and taught by qualified teachers, these include VET Technical Production (Music Industry), VET Media (a Digital and Interactive course through AIE) and VET Sport and Recreation..

There are a number of Vocational Education and Training (VET) programs available to students via external Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) and usually require students to attend another training facility such as a TAFE College or other Education Provider:  

School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBAT)

Students 15years or older at Wangaratta High School can commence a trade or traineeship while they are still at school.  Students in an SBAT program are required to attend school and their workplace on a regular basis and the training takes place at the workplace and through a Registered Training Organisation.
