Vocational Education and Training

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Vocational Education and Training & Careers

At Chisholm we have a community that supports the greatness in one through the strength of many.  We provide a curriculum that prepares students for challenges and opportunities beyond high school. 

Vocational Education and Training (VET) in schools enables students to gain nationally recognised industry knowledge and skills whilst completing their Senior Certificate. Students are able to tailor their learning pathway using a range of different school-based options available such as school-based traineeships/apprenticeships, off-site vet qualifications by external training providers and in school VET programs.

 At Chisholm Catholic College, we currently offer the following VET qualifications:

Code of Practice
​As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), Chisholm Catholic College has agreed to operate within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015. This includes a commitment to recognise the training qualifications issued by other Registered Training Organisations.

Chisholm Catholic College is registered to deliver VET courses under the direction of the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) as a delegate for the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA).

All of the VET courses offered by this college can lead to nationally recognised qualifications – a certificate (if all of the requirements of the qualification are completed) or a statement of attainment (for those parts that are successfully completed where the full qualification is not completed). This certificate/statement of attainment will be recognised in all eight state/territories in Australia. This is because Australia has a national qualifications framework called the Vocational Qualifications Framework (VQF). Certificates gained can lead directly to employment, further study or tertiary pathways.

Service Agreement
Educational pathway programs are generally two-year courses. Chisholm Catholic College guarantees that all students will be provided with every opportunity to complete the certificate courses offered as per the rights and obligations outlined in the enrolment process and student information handbooks. Students successfully achieving all qualification requirements will be provided with a Qualification and a Record of Results. Students who achieve at least one unit (but not a full qualification) for a certificate will receive a Statement of Attainment for units successfully achieved.

All reasonable opportunities will be provided to students, who enter a VET course after the initial start date, to complete the full certificate. However, this may not be achievable in all cases and students will be provided with a Statement of Attainment for competencies achieved from their entry point. Students who exit a certificate course prior to its completion date will receive a Statement of Attainment for competencies completed at the date of exit from the course.

All courses offered need to be of a viable class size for the College to run them. In the event that a VET subject may not run, or the school can no longer deliver a course offered, every effort will be made to ensure that students may complete their studies through another RTO, or a statement of attainment will be provided for all the units of competencies successfully completed.

Learning Experiences
Assessment is competency based. Students must demonstrate competence on more than one occasion to be deemed competent.

A range of teaching and learning strategies will be used to deliver competencies. These may include, but are not limited to practical tasks, group work, activities in simulated work environments, student workbooks, observations, oral questioning, work placements and industry excursions and activities.

Appropriately qualified staff will assess the extent to which a student is likely to achieve the stated competency standards and outcomes of the course, based on his/her qualifications and experience.
