Vocational Education & Training 2021

Vocational Education and Training (VET) department at the Australian Islamic College has been working with other Registered Training Organisations to make sure that our students have every available option for them when looking at a career after they leave the college.

Current students are on track to complete their courses and InshaAllah this will give them four (4) C grade equivalents towards their WACE graduation. Vocational Education and Training courses have also proved very beneficial not by just getting employment but also towards gaining entry into university where the VET courses they have completed has shown that our students have the required skills to gain entry into university.

The applications for North and South Metro TAFE have been submitted. We have 12 students that have applied for courses with them next year. InshaAllah all are accepted.

The Year 10 and 11s had an excursion to the Career Expo where they got to interact with all educational and industrial organisations to see what careers are available to them as well as educational paths they can take to achieve their goals.

The Vocational Education and Training Sports and Recreation and Sports Coaching Certificate II students also completed their Senior First Aid certificates which goes towards the course completion. Alhamdulillah the college has invested and trained two of our teachers to be qualified first aid trainers.

Vocational Education and Training will be expanded Inshaallah in the future with the introduction of new courses and also the reintroduction of old courses as well. Courses that are going to be introduced next year.
