What is VETiS funding?

While still in School, some students choose to pursue nationally recognized vocational education and training (VET) certifications.

VET focuses on practical learning that directly relates to the workplace. Different industries create qualifications that are widely recognized throughout the country, providing individuals with the knowledge and skills needed for specific jobs.

Students have the option to pursue VET in a classroom setting. They can enroll in a qualification offered by an external Registered Training Organization (RTO) that is supported and delivered by their school’s own RTO. The funding for these qualifications can come from the department’s VET investment budget or through fee-for-service agreements, where the student or parent covers the cost of the qualification as a school-based apprentice or trainee.

Do all the students need to have VETiS funding?

No, during the enrollment process, eligible students will have the option to decide whether they want to receive the VETiS subsidy for the specific VETiS-funded qualification. If students choose to opt-in, they need to acknowledge that they have been adequately informed about the availability of VETiS funding for this qualification before confirming their selection. It is also necessary for the teacher to acknowledge that the student’s parent or guardian has received the necessary information about VETiS through the completion or return of LT Training’s Parent Acknowledgement form.

Before reporting a student as eligible for VETiS, LT Training’s internal procedure requires confirmation from the nominated Program Manager regarding the student’s eligibility for accessing the VETiS subsidy.

For students who choose not to receive the VETiS subsidy (i.e., Fee for Service), a participant fee will be charged upon enrollment.
