At Keebra Park State High School students can have access to quality Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses in the following ways.

VET refers to the education and training that provides practical skills and knowledge which may be a meaningful pathway option that students may choose as part of their Senior Schooling studies. School students participating in a VET course while at school may:

  • Provide credit towards your Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE)
  • Contribute to the calculation of your tertiary selection rank
  • Support your transition to employment
  • Gain an apprenticeship or traineeship or further VET training

    VET provides:
  • Nationally recognised qualifications.
  • Industry relevant skills and knowledge.
  • On the job experience through apprenticeships and traineeships or work experience or work placement.


Upon successful completion of a VET Course, students will be awarded a certificate indicating they have met the requirements of the qualification.

If a student does not finish the entire course, but have met the requirements of one or more units of competency, they are awarded a Statement of Attainment; detailing the competencies achieved.

Completion of a VET Qualification provides points towards a students Queensland Certificate of Education.
