Vocational Educational Training (RTO30419)

Oakey State High School is a registered training organisation and can offer our students access to quality VET programs which (with the required effort) result in the student achieving a nationally recognised qualification.

Vocational Education and Training is​​ for students who want to develop work-related knowledge and skills. At Oakey State High School it is offered in a number of different ways including:

  1. Stand-alone VET courses delivered by the school with no impact on VETIS funding (see No 3). Currently Oakey State High School delivers:
    • Certificate I in Hospitality  (SIT10213 – 2016) & (SIT10216 – 2017)
    • Certificate II in Hospitality (SIT20213 – 2016) & (SIT201316 – 2017)
  2. SATs which allow students to work for an employer and train towards a recognised qualification under contract of training while completing their school studies. If the SAT is not completed by the end of Year 12, students may convert to a full-time or part-time traineeship/apprenticeship.
  3. Certain qualifications are provided through outside providers. These qualifications use the students VETIS funding. Students are entitled to one VETIS funded qualification delivered by an outside provider at Oakey State High School. Some external training providers may offer second chance funding for students who have already used their VETIS funding. Courses offered (subject to sufficient numbers) include:


​Certificate II in Hairdressing (SHB20216) ​TAFE SouthWest RTO No. 0526
​Certificate I in Construction (CPC10111) ​Train Assess Australia RTO No 1831

Students enrolled in the VET courses at Oakey State High School participate in the same enrolment and selection processes as other students at the School. Where numbers are limited for VET subjects, selection will be based on interview and/or on the order in which enrolments were received.
