The VET pathway at Alta-1 offers practical education and workplace learning experiences that assist students in developing skills, knowledge and attitudes which set them up for success after leaving school. This is achieved with the guidance of qualified educational staff who provide a strong community of support and feedback that prepares students for life in a working environment.
Alta-1 provides students with individual VET learning pathways that offer opportunities to undertake nationally recognised certificate courses and select work placements that suit their interests and future career aspirations.
Alta-1 partners with quality registered training organisations (RTOs) which allow certificate courses to be completed within the College.
These include Certificates I, II and III in General Education and Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways. Students can also choose to attend TAFE or other recognised training providers that align with their individual learning pathways.
Students are encouraged to participate in approved workplace learning programs through quality workplace partnerships.
These work placements consider the needs of individual students and provide environments that are both child-safe and provide optimum learning outcomes.
The Alta-1 VET program is a student-centred program that assists with planning their individual future pathways, ensures they are work-ready and provides them with options for further education.
