VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING
 
(VET)
 
Connecting Cooktown State School (RTO: 30556) to Career Transitions
 
What is VET? 
 

Vocational Education and Training (VET) plays an important role at Cooktown State School helping students move from school to further education, training and employment.  VET qualifications are recognised nationally and are industry endorsed.  These courses combine relevant knowledge and practical skills that reflect current industry standards. 

 

As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), Cooktown State School is able to deliver a range of nationally recognised training packages at Certificate I, II and III levels.  Students are also able to obtain VET qualifications offered by external RTOs.  These courses are studied as part of their Senior Schooling timetable.

 

Cooktown State School (RTO: 30556) is currently registered to deliver the following qualifications

  • AHC10110 Certificate I in Conservation and Land Management
  • AHC21010 Certificate II in Conservation and Land Management
  • BSB10115 Certificate I in Business
  • BSB20115 Certificate II in Business
  • CUA20715 Certificate II in Visual Arts
  • CUA30111 Certificate III in Visual Arts
  • CUA31115 Certificate III in Visual Arts

 

Students enrolled in VET courses have access to the VET Student Handbook.  This handbook highlights important information for students and in particular refers to the complaints and appeals policy and procedures.

 
Complaints and Appeals Policy and Procedures
 
To be compliant with Standard 6 of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2016 the school RTO must have a publically available complaints and appeals policy. Complaints or appeals should be directed to the Principal as CEO of the school: lrayn10@eq.edu.au.  Any further queries should be directed to the RTO Manager.
 

Enrolment into a Vocational Education and Training (VET) course after the start date may lead to a Statement of Attainment/s only, rather than the complete qualification. To obtain a Certificate or Qualification, all students studying a VET course must have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).  For more information visit:  www.usi.gov.au.

 
School Based Apprenticeships/Traineeships (SATs)
 
Students in Years 11 and 12 are offered opportunities to become School based Apprentices/Trainees (SATs).  SATs are proving to be a valuable way for students to start their career by combining school with work and training (at Certificate II or III level).
 
Work experience or structured workplace learning is offered widely to students in Years 10 – 12.  This regularly results in our students being offered an opportunity for a School based Apprenticeship or Traineeship (SATs).  All SATs students must continue to meet the requirements of the school code of behaviour and strive for continual improvement in their studies. The Guidance Officer is also available for further career advice.
