What is VET in Schools?

Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) is a Queensland Government funding program which focuses on delivering Certificate I and II level qualifications to secondary school students in years 10 – 12 with the aim to equip young people with the skills and knowledge required for specific industries.

Eligible students can undertake VETiS funded qualifications as part of their school studies when delivered by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) such as Churchill Education. Alternatively, students can undertake a Certificate III or higher level qualification through a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (SAT). Churchill Education can also facilitate these.

VET in Schools Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible to participate, the requirements are that students:

  • Are enrolled in a QLD secondary school, years 10 – 12
  • Permanently reside in Queensland
  • Don’t already hold or be studying a Certificate I or II level qualification funded under VETiS, unless enrolment and/or completion fell prior to July 1, 2014, in which case entitlement still stands for VETiS funding.

Churchill Education’s VETiS Scholarship Program

Churchill Education is committed to helping the young people of our community to achieve their dreams through education. We believe that education opens doors and we want young people to seize the opportunities that come their way to:

  • Learn new skills
  • Inspire others
  • Be a positive force for change in their communities
  • Have adventures along the way!

Accordingly, we’re pleased to offer one student from each full program intake across participating schools a full scholarship into a Certificate III level qualification with Churchill.

You may have seen us using the hashtag #yourcareerstartsnow. This is because we want students to understand that the choices they take now can be the first steps on some really exciting paths. They don’t have to wait until they’ve finished school to start building their career, and training now can give them a big leg-up into the workforce when they graduate.

Get Set 4 Work

Churchill Education’s VETiS courses include an employment readiness program to prepare students for workforce participation, covering subjects such as interview skills and resume development and writing skills.

Why choose Churchill Education?

We’re proud of the reputation we’ve developed as a provider of high-calibre training in qualifications across the spectrum, from Hospitality to Outdoor Education and lots more in between.

We’ve worked pretty hard to earn this reputation, and we’re not letting go of it!

So, we keep our standards high. We evolve, and we inspire students to evolve, too.

At Churchill Education, we do things differently – for a reason. We recruit trainers with life and industry experience who are dedicated not just to teaching, but to creating innovative learning experiences for their students.

We believe that every learner deserves the opportunity to succeed, and that it’s our job to facilitate the success of every learner and support them all the way to the finish line. Sometimes this means thinking outside the box. Sometimes it means scrapping the box and building a new one, from the ground up.

If this sounds good to you and you’re interested in running a VETiS program at your school, we’d love to help.
