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.

The department has been really busy and proactive in making sure that all the students are given the best opportunities to build their skills to be job ready. This is of particular importance especially in the shortage of skilled workers currently being face in Australia. At the Australian Islamic College we want to make sure that our students have the opportunities, and Vocational Education and Training is one pathway to achieving that.

Our Sports and Recreation and Sports Coaching students have been doing their practicals with Br Farish and Daniel Luxton. They were involved with the lower school students. They ran drills which they ran impressively. Congratulations to the students and well done trainers. Some pictures and videos are attached.

The Vocational Education and Training Hospitality classes have also been active, raising funds for the formal dinner as well as for the students to go for a Barista course, at the Barista HQ. One group went on Thursday and the next group will be going in week 9. Well done to Sr Meena for organising the excursion for the students.

VET in Schools programs, which are run by South Metro and North Metro Colleges of TAFE, in conjunction with the Australian Islamic College will be taking enrolments for 2023. The enrolments will be open online from July and will end on the 31st of August. Any student interested in participating in the programs, please come and see me to organise the enrolments.

Please note that enrolling for these courses are very competitive. You require a ‘C’ grade for Maths and English as a minimum to apply. This initiative means that they are in school for 4 days and attend TAFE colleges, as young responsible adults, one day per week.

North Metro TAFE have released their courses for next year as per below. You can also click on the links as well to gain access to more information.


South Metro TAFE courses will be sent once received.

Please take note of the dates when applications are open and closing. Places are competitive so early enrolments is advisable
