What is VET?

VET stands for Vocational Education and Training. VET is a national system designed to prepare workers for industry, in areas such as construction, conservation and land management, community services, health, visual arts and more. VET awards include four certificate levels, Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas within the Australian Qualifications Framework.

 

The VET Quality Framework is aimed at achieving greater national consistency in the way training providers are registered and monitored.

All VET Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), including Tauondi Aboriginal College, are regulated under the National VET Regulator Act 2011 and its standards regulated by the Australian Quality Skills Authority (ASQA).
