FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT TVET COURSES

What are TVET Courses?

TVET courses are TAFE NSW vocational subjects for Years 11 and 12 students to study while still at school. These courses may enable students to:

• gain work skills

• get a head start in a career

• follow a pathway to further study at TAFE or university.

TVET courses classified as Industry Curriculum Framework (ICF) can contribute to the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).

What can students expect when studying

with TAFE NSW?

TAFE NSW is an adult learning environment with industry experienced teachers. TAFE NSW courses encourage a ‘hands-on’ approach, often combining study with work placement. Students have access to teachers and careers counselling.

Open Training and Education Network

TAFE NSW provides vocational and technical education through ten institutes across the state. The Open Training and Education Network (OTEN), is part of TAFE NSW, Western Sydney Institute, and specialises in the innovative delivery of distance education. OTEN provides education and training programs by flexible delivery. Generally, this means that students don’t need to be in a classroom to undertake their course. They receive their learning materials in a number of different formats including online, CD, DVD and paper-based.

To help students maximise their learning experience and complete their TVET course, they receive ongoing support from their supervising TVET teachers at OTEN. Students and teachers are able to keep in touch by email, phone, the Online Learning Support website (OLS) and social media networks including Facebook and Twitter.

At OTEN, we are committed to helping students achieve their educational goals.

Your TVET teacher will help you achieve the practical course outcomes using a range of communication tools that may include:

• telephone • email

• written feedback • workshops

Framework courses:

• give credit towards the Higher School Certificate (HSC) • provide a national vocational qualification

recognised by employers, TAFE and other vocational education and training providers across Australia

• require students to complete a work placement • have an optional HSC examination. The examination can be included in the calculation of the ATAR give credit towards related courses at universities, TAFE NSW colleges and other training organisations. Non-Framework courses:

give credit towards the Higher School Certificate (HSC) provide a national vocational qualification recognised by employers, TAFE and other vocational education and training providers across Australia give credit towards related courses at universities, TAFE NSW colleges and other training organisations do not count in the calculation of the ATAR.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT TVET COURSES

When is the earliest/latest I can enrol in a

TVET course at OTEN?

OTEN can accommodate students enrolling from December of the previous year. This is particularly useful if the student wants to get a head start on the learning materials during the Christmas holidays. Year 12 students may be able to get access to their learning materials from the beginning of Term 4 once their re-enrolment form is received, dependent on when the BOSTES endorses the course. The latest a student can be enrolled in a TVET course is March of their study year. This applies to both Year 11 and Year 12 students.

Are TVET courses the same as my other

school subjects?

Yes, they have the same unit values as your elective subjects at school. Please see the course guide for the units in each course.

If I am in Year 9 or 10, can I do a

TVET course?

If you are in Year 9 or 10, you are eligible to apply to do a TVET course, but you must meet specific criteria and be approved for funding. For further information, ask you school or contact your TAFE Institute Consultant.

How will a TVET course benefit me?

All TVET courses are designed to lead into higher level TAFE NSW courses. You will have an opportunity for advanced standing and/or continuing student status on successful completion of your study.

TVET courses will enhance your entry into the workforce. This is particularly true for those courses where there is a work placement requirement. Many TVET courses result in a Certificate II or III. Students may also request a Transcript of Academic Record if the course they are studying is not a complete certificate.

Other benefits include: • wider subject choices

• the opportunity to experience possible future career/study pathways

• access to TAFE NSW workshops and facilities that meet industry training standards

• an adult learning experience.

TVET courses give you more subjects to choose from, practical training and an insight into a certain career and employability skills.

TVET courses provide you with two sets of credentials from the NSW Board of Studies, Teaching and

Educational Standards (BOSTES) and nationally recognised qualifications from TAFE NSW which can contribute to further related study at TAFE or university. Employers will recognise your TAFE qualifications.

Does a TVET course count towards the

Australian Tertiary Admission Rank?

The results of final exams will be counted towards ATAR calculation only if you study two years of a framework course.

For the framework course to count towards the ATAR, the following must occur:

• successful completion of a 240 hour TVET framework course

(5)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT TVET COURSES

What is work placement?

Work placement means students are required, as a part of the course, to complete a specified number of hours in the work place.

Many courses require work placement which can be in industry or in a simulated workplace depending on the course. You will need to check with your careers adviser or TAFE Teacher.

Does a TVET course involve work placement?

If you intend to enrol in Accounts Administration, Aged Care, Business Services, Health Services Assistance, Information Technology, Retail or Tourism, you will need to do a minimum of 35 hours (one week) of work placement for each 120 hours of these courses.

There is two weeks of work placement for the 240 hour course.

Your school will refer you to Workplace Service Providers who will assist you to find a work placement. You need to be placed in a workplace where you can practise your competencies. You may be assessed in that workplace. The timing of your placement will be negotiated with your TVET teacher. Your part-time paid work may count towards your work placement hours if that work supports your TVET course. If you think you may be eligible for this credit, ask your OTEN TVET teacher to confirm this for you. The Children’s Services courses at OTEN also have a work placement component.

If I have a disability, can I do TVET?

At OTEN, we encourage students with a disability to participate in TVET courses although careful consideration must be given to the courses selected by students with a disability. The chosen course must be the most appropriate course for the student and one that will provide successful vocational outcomes together with the opportunity to further education and employment.

The decision by students with a disability to undertake a TVET course through OTEN should be made after close consultation between the student and their parents, school teachers, the region’s Support Teacher Transition (STT) and OTEN Teacher Consultants for Students with Disability. This consultation ensures that students select a course which meets their needs and interests. Consultation about the student’s capacity to meet the demands of distance education and the level of additional support the student may require is important in order to maximise study and learning outcomes for students. School personnel should contact their regional consultant or Support Teacher Transition before making contact with OTEN. The OTEN TVET Consultant will then liaise with the relevant Teacher Consultant. OTEN has Teacher Consultants for students:

• who are deaf or hearing impaired • who are blind or vision impaired • with learning or intellectual disability • with physical disability, chronic illness or a medical condition

• with mental illness

• with neurological disability

Teacher Consultants for Students with Disability can offer advice on course requirements, how the course meets the student’s abilities, needs and interests and the support which can be offered to students. The level of additional support required is to be negotiated and agreed on with the Disability Teacher Consultant and School Region prior to enrolment.

Support can include:

• the loan of adaptive technology such as screen reading software

• materials in alternative formats • learner support

• exam and test reasonable adjustment • study skills assistance

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT TVET COURSES

Withdrawals

If a student withdraws from the TVET course within the first 3 weeks and has not submitted any assessments, there will be no charge for the course. If a student withdraws after this 3 week period, the school will be charged for the full amount of the course, even if the student has not submitted any work.

What are school based apprenticeships

or traineeships?

School based traineeships are a combination of school, part time employment and vocational study. You need to discuss school based traineeships with your school careers advisor. If you are in Year 10, 11 or 12, you can undertake a part-time traineeship at TAFE and gain credit towards your Higher School Certificate. If you are a school based trainee, you will be paid for working part-time - currently 100 days before 31 December in the HSC year. This may require you to do some work during school hours. While you are on the job, you will be provided with practical training by your employer.

Your formal training, usually 4 - 6 hours per week during school terms, counts as a HSC subject. In some cases it can also be used in calculating your ATAR. If you undertake a school based traineeship, you can achieve:

• a Higher School Certificate - in many cases achieving an ATAR

• a nationally recognised vocational qualification - usually at Certificate II or III level

• a Certificate of Proficiency • paid part-time work • a head start to a career
