Career and Vocational Education (CaVE)
The Career and Vocational Education (CaVE) learning area incorporates Nationally Accredited Certificate courses—both onsite and offsite—School-Based Traineeships (SBT), Workplace Learning (ADWPL) and Career and Enterprise (CAE) subjects.
All of these programs provide viable pathway opportunities for those students who are seeking full-time employment, apprenticeships or other training at the completion of Year 12. A Certificate II qualification can provide students with the opportunity to seek higher training in a Certificate IV or Diploma level, which can lead to entry to university through the ‘alternative entry’ model.

Authority Developed Work Place Learning (ADWPL)
Workplace Learning is an Authority-developed endorsed program. To complete this endorsed program, a student works in one or more paid or unpaid workplace(s) to develop a set of transferable workplace skills.
An example of unpaid work would be school authorised work placement (work experience) during school hours. This would be a one-week long placement organised by the school.
An example of paid work would be a casual or part-time job outside of school hours. This can be an existing part-time or casual job that the student already holds.
Either work placement requires students to contact the VET office and discuss with the VET Coordinator. Please note that Year 10 students may also use ADWPL towards their WACE.
Students must hold good standing and complete relevant Work Experience and inductions before commencing their school organised work placement. Students must allow four weeks for the school to find a work placement and late applications will not be accepted.
The student will be provided with a Logbook & Skills Journal where they must record the number of hours worked and provide evidence of knowledge and understanding of the workplace skills. After 55 hours of completed work, students must submit their journal with questions completed and hours logged. Upon satisfactory receipt, the student will be awarded one C grade. Students can earn up to a total of four C grades in senior school (from years 10 to 12) from 220+ hours of completed work and journal submission.
- 55 hours worked with completed Logbook & Skills Journal = one x C Grade
- 110 hours worked with completed Logbook & Skills Journal = two x C Grades
- 165 hours worked with completed Logbook & Skills Journal = three x C Grades
- 220 hours worked with completed Logbook & Skills Journal = four x C Grades
