Vocational and Non ATAR Pathways

Vocational pathways enable students to incorporate workplace training, real-world skills and hands-on experience into their HSC. There is a range of TVET subjects, apprenticeships and traineeship options. 

Vocational Education and Training (VET) and TVET (delivered through TAFE) courses are practical subjects that can be studied alongside traditional subjects. All VET and TVET courses count towards the HSC and can lead to a nationally recognised qualification from TAFE NSW or the Board of Studies. Some VET and TVET courses developed by the Board of Studies also contribute toward an ATAR. 

VET courses are: 

  • Designed to meet industry training needs
  • Supported by industry, who help with curriculum design and course delivery
  • Based on the national training curriculum
  • Designed to meet national training standards
  • Assessed on competency
  • Designed to provide clearly defined pathways through to the workplace
  • Accredited by both the Board of Studies and ASQA (dual accreditation).
