ALHAMDULILLAH. The Vocational Education and Training (VET) department at the Australian Islamic College have achieved 100% competency across all their year 12 courses in 2021. This is due to the hard work and persistence of the trainers to make sure that our year 12 students achieve their qualifications.
I would to thank and congratulate May Elsaba, Mohamed Farish and Daniel Luxton for their efforts. With the encouragement of management, the VET department are expanding the courses available to the students. On top of what has been offered, we are introducing new courses and also training new teachers. All this is in line with the growth of vocational education at the Australian Islamic College.
The VET department recently were approached by ATC Worksmart and Coffee Club to have our student apply for School Based Traineeships where they would work at Coffee Club one day a week whilst completing a Certificate II in Hospitality. To date 5 of our students have been offered trials and the expectation is that all 5 will be offered traineeships. These students will be getting a qualification and getting paid to work at the same time.
