Year 10 students have the option of undertaking a VET Course run at Cheltenham SC. This is to align the Year 10 timetable with the rest of Senior School and to allow students to undertake an extra elective.

Year 11 and 12 students are also able to take on an internal VET subject as part of their VCE. Below is a list of these courses and their prices.

VET Sport and Recreation:

In the first year, you will complete an exciting range of sporting-related units and develop a basic level of skills for instructing and officiating in a variety of games and sports.

You will also develop knowledge of the sporting industry and relevant workplace skills. You will learn about the preparation and equipment required for sporting and recreation sessions, how to conduct these sessions, first aid and how to deal with clients.

There will be a wide variety of sports covered that will be tailored to your interests.

The second year of the course has a focus on sports coaching, group facilitation and sports programming. You will also develop knowledge of managing risk and safety in sport, and learn how to design, develop and implement a user group education program in a sport and recreation-related area.

Note: User pay excursions/camps will be used to enhance the curriculum at a cost of $250 for the Semester. An event will be created with the cost, once the subject selection has been completed and parents will receive a notification on COMPASS to complete payment.
