Career Learning and Vocational Education

Career Learning

Career Learning describes the ongoing lifelong process of managing learning, work and life. It requires the skills and knowledge to plan and make informed decisions about education, training and career choices. The NSW Department of Education is committed to preparing young people for rewarding lives as engaged citizens and a dynamic society.

Workplace Learning

  • explore first-hand the world of work
  • gain job-ready skills and knowledge
  • practice general and industry-specific skills
  • identify career options and pathways
  • be inspired about new work opportunities

Workplace learning includes work experience for students who are at least 14, as well as work placement for students studying Vocational Education and Training (VET) subjects.

Vocational Education & Training

Studying a vocational education and training (VET) course as part of the HSC is a smart choice.  VET courses provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to make the most of your future. Students who study a VET qualification at school are more likely to:

  • succeed studying higher level VET qualifications and
  • gain apprenticeships or other employment when they leave school.
