Training and beyond school
In Australia, higher education is the sector that offers university-level education, that is, at degree level and above. The Commonwealth, state and territory governments share responsibility for the sector. Higher education courses are those leading to the award of an associate degree, bachelors degree, graduate certificate, graduate diploma, masters degree or doctoral degree. Some courses leading to the award of a diploma or advanced diploma may also be accredited as higher education courses.
Almost all higher education in Australia is offered by universities. A small but growing number of non-university providers and overseas institutions also offer accredited higher education courses.
Vocational Education and Training in Schools
The Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) Program gives students the opportunity to try a particular profession while still at school. The student takes part in VET studies on offer at the school that can contribute towards achieving their Northern Territory Certificate of Education.
By participating in this program they learn about the skills and requirements of a particular job at school or through a local registered training provider, and can complete a number of work placements during the year.
School based apprenticeships and traineeships
School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships provide a pathway for Territory students to successfully transition from school to work.
The apprenticeships and traineeships aim to provide students with an increased ability to perform in the workplace, leading to increased career choices and opportunities to transition from school to full time apprenticeships, employment or further education and training.
