VET Delivered to Secondary Students

What is VET Delivered to Secondary Students?

Vocational Education and Training [VET] Delivered to Secondary Students is a program delivered to school students as part of your Western Australian Certificate of Education. 

We specifically choose courses that provide clear career pathways after high school. They will give you practical skills and an understanding of what to expect from the workplace and, once completed, may provide credits towards other nationally recognised qualifications, or lead to employment. 

Students enrolled in a VET Delivered to Secondary Students course attend a North Metropolitan TAFE campus one or two days per week.

Applications are now closed.  Please contact the VET Coordinator at your School regarding the outcome of your application.

Please note that continuing students from 2020 in the same qualification/program do not need to apply online. We will liaise with your school VET Coordinator to confirm your intentions.

Before you start your application

Our VET Delivered to Secondary Students courses are extremely competitive, therefore it is recommended you provide as much evidence as possible to support your application. These documents must be uploaded when applying through our online application system. 

To complete the application you will need

  • Western Australian Student number (WASN). This can be found on your school report or speak with your school’s VET Coordinator; 
  • Unique Student Identifier (USI) number. If you have not already created an USI then you will need to visit this website first
  • Year 9 & 10 school reports in an electronic format i.e. PDF (‘C’ grade or above in Mathematics and English is preferred but all applications will be considered); 
  • OLNA (Online Literacy and Numeracy Assessment) Report (if applicable); 
  • Parent/guardian email address and mobile phone number; 
  • Proof of Citizenship;
  • Resume, references and any certificates which will help support your application; and 
  • A Student Statement outlining why you should be selected to participate in the course (please note there is a limit of 500 characters that can be entered in this section). 

When selecting course preferences it is important that you have read the information about each course in the 2021 VET Delivered to Secondary Students Course Guide and discussed your options with your school VET Coordinator before you start your application, as not all courses may be appropriate for you. Your school VET Coordinator will be contacted to endorse your application.

When selecting your course you will need to select your campus first. It is important that you can travel with ease to and from that campus (you may find this website useful)  

Once you commence your application, you can save your changes if you need to exit and return at a later time. You will be emailed a link to your saved application which you can only access from the email address entered at the time you save and exit.


There are no tuition fees for the majority of the VET Delivered to Secondary Schools programs. You may be required to buy textbooks and other resources.
