Vocational Education and Training (VET) refers to the qualifications, short courses and training programs available through the school that provide students with the skills and knowledge required to meet workplace and industry standards.
Urrbrae is part of The Inner South Trade Schools for the Future Industries Pathways Program (IPP) which enables students to combine their SACE studies with VET in courses that can lead to either School Based Apprenticeships (SBA) or full time apprenticeships. Each of the ten schools in the program offers specialist pathway courses our students can access. The two programs Urrbrae offers are Automotive and Engineering Pathways. Urrbrae maintains strong industry links in these areas to facilitate students’ transition into training and employment.
Urrbrae is also a member of Quality LinCs, an organisation which offers students the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of other VET courses which contribute to their personal development as well as preparing them for transition into training and employment. VET courses are recognised by SACE.
