Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses are nationally recognised qualifications and provide an opportunity for students to receive credit towards their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), VCE Vocational Major (VM) or Victorian Pathways Certificate (VPC). These qualifications are provided through TAFEs and are delivered across several Secondary Schools and TAFEs. VET is not a stand alone senior secondary certificate, rather, students can study a VET unit as part of their VCE-VM, VPC and in some cases their VCE program.
As part of their VCE studies, students at Kurunjang Secondary College may also undertake VET Music studies through the College of Sound and Music Production (COSAMP). Upon successful completion of this scored VET in VCE course, students earn a Certificate III in Music, as well as credit towards their VCE.
