What's happening?

Post School VET in 2019


Sydney Catholic Schools has been selected by the NSW Government to deliver a range of nationally recognised qualifications. This means we are able to offer extension courses to students, once they have completed their HSC, to finish off Certificate III qualifications and be better prepared to move on to work or further study next year.

These courses are subsidised by the NSW Government under the Smart and Skilled program. Subsidised places are available to students who meet the selection criteria.

In 2019 the course will run from Tuesday 12 November to Wednesday 18 December and will consist of a blend of face-to-face and online delivery. These streamlined courses will give full credit to students for the Units of Competency already completed for the HSC and therefore focus on the additional units needed for the full Certificate III.

  • The student understands the commitment required, including:
    • The completion of all course requirements, including mandatory work placement
    • Regular attendance.
    • Timetabling issues which may require students to catch up on class work missed at school.

  1. Select the course you are interested in from the 'courses' tab at the top of this page. Read about the course and its requirements.
  2. Complete the EVET Expression of Interest form and give it to your school VET Coordinator. Only applications that are supported by the student’s home school will be considered.

Important Information

  • First round applications will close on Friday 6th September 2019.
  • Students must investigate courses carefully and attend interviews required by the TSC to ensure they are making well-informed course choices. Some courses also involve completion of a selection test.
  • Once applications have been processed the TSC will contact the school to confirm details provided by the student and determine the viability of running courses (subject to there being sufficient student numbers). The TSC will notify school and the parents if the student’s application has been successful and provide further orientation information.
  • Once enrolments have been confirmed, the TSC will invoice Systemic Catholic Schools for the student levy. In 2020 the student levy for a 2 unit course is $300 and a 3 unit course $450.
  • Non-systemic schools will be invoiced by the Sydney Catholic Schools office.
