Frequently Asked Questions

What is Vocational Education and Training?

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is designed to teach you the knowledge and specific practical skills to help you in the workplace. It’s delivered in a number of ways – through schools, dual-sector universities with VET courses, TAFE institutes, private registered training organisations and community colleges.

Vocational education and training is learning that directly relates to getting a job. The VET system delivers education and training services for individuals at every stage of their work life, whether you’re a student, a job seeker or already employed

Fortress Learning has been delivering nationally recognised VET courses such as the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and the TAE50116 Diploma of Vocational Education and Training and the TAE50216 Diploma of Training, Design and Development for over a decade and we pride ourselves on our ability to continually grow and adapt to changes in the VET space, allowing us to ensure that our TAE students leave their courses with the knowledge and skills required for the job

Why Is Vocational Education Important?

Vocational Education is important because it gives us the skills and knowledge we need to do a job and when we start to think about it, there are LOTS of industry-specific jobs out there that rely on us getting a good vocational education.

Vocational education is training that equips students with practical experience and technical skills in a specific type of field and prepares learners for jobs in manual and practical activities. A learner develops expertise in specific trade areas, crafts, and careers. Craft vocational trades involve artisans, craftsmanship, welding, plumbing, medical assisting, and agriculture amongst others.

There are also high-end professions like engineering, accountancy, nursing, law, and architecture, even though these disciplines have degree programs for specialization too.

Vocational education is offered at the secondary, or post-secondary level constantly combined with an apprenticeship-like system.

Vocational Education is important for lots of reasons – to students, to industry and to the community but students definitely have the greatest stake in the quality of vocational education and training (VET).

Students often rely on VET outcomes to gain employment or career advancement. While students cannot always be expected to fully understand the complexities of the sector or what constitutes quality, they must be able to make informed choices about training that best meets their needs. Students must have confidence that no matter which provider they choose, they will receive quality training and assessment that is responsive to industry needs and to their needs.

What are vocational courses in Australia?

Vocational courses in Australia, called VET (Vocational Education and Training), are training courses offered by accredited Australian educational bodies.

Vocational courses prepare learners for jobs that are based in manual or practical activities, traditionally non-academic and totally related to a specific trade, occupation or vocation.

For example, the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment prepares people from multiple industries such as hairdressing, nursing, firefighting, plumbing etc to become Trainers and Assessors of that same industry.
