Vocational Education & Training

Cradle Coast Trade Training Centre

VET courses offered at the College

  • Senior College students can study nationally accredited VET courses as part of their Tasmanian Certificate of Education in Year 11 and 12 over one or two years.
  • Students in Year 10 can participate in an Introduction to Hospitality course that focuses on hygiene, safety and Barista areas. This will enable students to fast track their course selection in Senior College for Certificate II in Hospitality.  This course has been designed with Industry backing for students to complete a skill set and gain entry into part-time work.
  • Short courses are also available for Senior College students, which include Responsible Service of Alcohol, White Card training and First Aid. Students access these short courses to strengthen employment opportunities. 
  • Australian School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships are popular choices for students pursuing a trade pathway, or entry into the workforce whilst studying at the College.


VET is an integral part of vocational learning and the College is committed to providing all students with the high quality education necessary to complete their secondary school education. Students who enroll in a VET program:

  • spend time in a simulated work environment,
  • develop employability skills common to all industry areas,
  • achieve specific skills and knowledge for the industry area of their choice,
  • gain nationally accredited qualifications that assist in future training and pathways, and
  • establish strong partnerships and networks within the local employment environment.
