VETiS stands for ‘Vocational Education and Training in Schools

Schools and other providers may offer their students the opportunity to complete a VET course as the industry skills component of a VCAL program.

Melbourne City Mission, as a Registered Training Organisation, can bring the VET programs to your community centre, flexible learning program or school.

As part of their VCAL program, students must complete the Industry Specific Skills strand.

Depending on the units they choose, students may or may not be eligible to receive a full Certificate II; however, enough training can be offered to meet VCAL requirements.
