Vocational Education

Gungahlin College is a registered training organisation (RTO 88208). Vocational courses provide competency based training that is workplace relevant and develops skills that enhance training and employment opportunities beyond college. Students work towards the completion of specific competencies that will allow them to receive a nationally recognised qualification.

VET Delivery (During COVID)

All ACT government schools are moving to online delivery for all curriculum areas including VET. This will require some modification to the way VET programs are currently delivered.

Term 2 will focus on the delivery and assessment of theory for the competencies in the BSSS VET unit currently being delivered. The practical evidence required for achievement of individual competencies will be the focus of teaching and assessment when students return to school.

Competency based learning provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate competence over a period of time and in a range of contexts. Students may be awarded competencies in the future through demonstration of practical skills which meets the evidence required and the theory work students have already completed.

Information is available on the Board of Senior Secondary Studies Website at Board of Senior Secondary Studies FAQ.

For more information please contact Sue Birkett, Director of Vocational Education.
