VET Subject Selection
Vocational Education and Training (VET)
VET in the VCE or VCAL allows students to include vocational studies within their senior secondary certificate. Students undertake nationally recognised training that contributes to their VCE or VCAL.
VET may contribute to the VCE at the Units 1 and 2 or Units 3 and 4 level, and may also contribute to the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).
VET contributes to the VCAL through satisfying the requirements of the Industry Specific Skills or Work Related Skills strands. Each completed 90-hour block of VET equals one VCAL unit.
Mount Clear College is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). RTOs are registered to deliver quality- assured and nationally recognised training and qualifications. Mount Clear College (No. 21741) is registered under the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority.
Certificates and Statements of Attainment
The RTO is responsible for ensuring students are enrolled in an accredited state or nationally recognised VET course. Most courses are based on Training Packages that are nationally agreed units of competency and qualifications.
Students deemed competent in all units of a training qualification will receive a nationally recognised Certificate. Students deemed competent in some units will receive a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment.
Third Party arrangements
Students will be notified of any training provided by a Third Party.

Work placement, and additional classes, are a compulsory component of some VET programs and may need to be undertaken during school holidays.
Students are required to pay for the cost of materials but not the cost of tuition. A non-refundable, maximum payment of $70 towards the cost of materials is required by the end of the current school year to secure enrolment.
