For students in Years 11 and 12, externally-delivered VET (EVET) courses may be available to those who wish to complete a VET qualification that is not delivered at their own school.

EVET Courses are Available at:

  • TAFE Colleges (previously known as TVET)
  • Private Providers

Schools have responsibility for managing applications and students must always discuss their options with their school VET Coordinator or Career Adviser. For students in systemic Catholic schools, where a course is available at their school, students must attend this course rather than with another provider.

When applying for an EVET course, students and their parents will need to show that:

  • Career pathway planning is integral to the student’s course selection
  • The student understands the commitment required, including:
    • The completion of all course requirements, including mandatory work placement
    • Regular attendance. Students are responsible for arranging their own travel and meeting the travel costs
    • Time-tabling issues which may require students to catch up on class work missed at school

What Courses are Available?

Course availability will vary between TAFE campuses and not all course will be available. Check with the school’s VET Coordinator or Career Adviser.


How Do I Apply?

  • Discuss with your school’s VET Coordinator or Career Adviser
  • Students must investigate courses carefully and attend any information sessions to ensure they are making well-informed course choices
  • Applications are made online to the Catholic Schools Office. Once applications have been received and approved, the relevant TAFE campus will advised, they will contact the school to confirm details, determine viability of running courses (subject to there being sufficient student numbers) and notify schools of course schedules, days and times.
  • Once enrolments have been confirmed, the Catholic Schools Office, Diocese of Lismore will invoice schools for the student levy.
