Vocational Education and Training (VET)

Morayfield State High School is registered for the delivery of vocational courses through the Queensland Curriculum Studies Authority (QCAA) as delegate for Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). National Provider No. 30403.

Morayfield State High School supports students enrolling in VET in Schools (VETiS) programs including those from external providers. VET courses are usually completed in Year 11 and 12. Information is available through notices, email, SET planning, website and facebook.

Many students begin their future careers by completing School-based Apprenticeships or Traineeships (SAT) while in school. Vacancies are advertised through notices, email, SET planning, website and facebook.

For students who are in Year 12 in 2019 VET Subjects do not contribute to an OP but can provide students with a Tertiary Rank and a vocational certificate and points towards their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).

From 2020, students will be able to use a Certificate III qualification with four “General” subjects for Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) eligibility.

Certificates of Completion will be awarded to students who are competent in all aspects of a qualification. Students with incomplete qualifications will receive a Statement of Attainment listing all completed competencies.

Students enrolling in any of these qualifications must apply for a Unique Student Identifier (USI) as outlined on the Enrolment Agreement Form and the Student Handbook.

The school RTO is committed to completing the outlined training and assessment once students have started study in their chosen qualifications or courses from the course start date (including delivery by a third party on the school RTO’s behalf).

Students who enter the course after the start date will have a negotiated package of units that will lead to a statement of attainment.

In the event that the school RTO is unable to complete delivery of training, the school RTO will, if possible, arrange for agreed training and assessment to be completed through another RTO (fees may be incurred). Prior to the transfer to another RTO, affected students will be formally notified of the arrangements, and an agreement to those arrangements, including any refund of fees, will be obtained. If transfer is not possible, the RTO will gain a written agreement for a subject/course transfer from the student and parent.

Support for students studying VETiS qualifications is managed by the school VET department.

The school, as an RTO, has a complaints and appeals policy specific to its RTO operations.

A complaint can be made to the school RTO regarding the conduct of:

  • the school RTO, its trainers, assessors or other school RTO staff

  • students of the RTO

  • any third parties providing services on behalf of the school RTO (if relevant).

An appeal can be made to the school RTO to request a review of a decision, including assessment decisions.

The school RTO will ensure that the principles of natural justice and procedural fairness are adopted at every stage of the complaints and appeals process. All formal complaints and appeals will be heard and decided on within 60 calendar days of receiving the written complaint or appeal.

 If the schoolRTO considers more than 60 calendar days are required to process and finalise the complaint or appeal, the complainant or appellant will be informed of the reasons in writing and will be regularly updated on the progress of the matter.

If the processes fail to resolve the complaint or appeal, a review by an independent party will be provided if requested.

Complaints or appeals should be directed to the Principal as CEO of the school RTO:
