Wyndham College successfully implements a range of Vocational education and training courses. These courses include but are not limited to:

  • hospitality - food and beverage

All Wyndham College staff delivering the course are nationally recognised facilitators, who through their dedication and support allow the students to gain meaningful "real world" experiences both at the school and through work placement. Many students who have completed their VET courses at Wyndham College have continued to apply their skills through employment in cafes, restaurants, hospitals, accountancy firms, software design companies, businesses and at university.

VET in schools allow Year 11 and 12 students to:

  • develop industry specific skills which can contribute towards their ATAR
  • gain nationally recognised VET qualifications and units of competency while still completing their Higher School Certificate
  • develop employment skills
  • gain an understanding of the world or work, providing them with valuable experience to assist with planning and pursuing their career pathways.

TAFE delivered vocational education and training

TAFE-delivered vocational education and training (TVET) courses allow school students to gain workplace skills and experience to get a head-start on their career.

TVET allows you to:

  • gain practical, work-related skills to enhance your future employment opportunities
  • complete units that count towards your Higher School Certificate (HSC)
  • start or complete a nationally-recognised TAFE NSW qualification while still at school.

When you finish your TVET course you'll receive a nationally-accredited Certificate qualification or a Statement of Attainment. Most TVET courses articulate into further TAFE or university studies. More information can be found at the TVET website.

School based apprenticeships and traineeships

School based apprenticeships and traineeships (SBAT's) are more than just part-time jobs - they're a great way to set yourself up for the career you want whilst you are completing your HSC. School based apprenticeships and traineeships are available to all Year 11 and 12 high school students in NSW. They allow students to commence an apprenticeship or complete a traineeship while at school. A school based apprenticeship or traineeship combines paid work, training and school; and as well as an industry recognised national qualification you will gain credit towards the HSC. Some apprenticeships and traineeships can contribute towards the ATAR.

More information can be found at the SBAT's website.

White card

At Wyndham College the students have the opportunity to gain their white card. A white card is required in order to work on a building site in NSW, QLD, SA, VIC and shows that you have received the necessary training in safe work place practices.
