Please understand that the information provided in this Handbook has been published in June. At this time, arrangements for VETiS courses in terms of the programs offered and the days on which classes will be conducted and the charges associated with the courses are still subject to negotiation.
Unless stated otherwise, the information provided here is based on 2016 course and costing details and should be used as a guide only. Final details will be conveyed to students and parents as soon as it becomes available. The most current information related to materials fees is attached to the last page of the VET application form.
NOTE: Lyndhurst Secondary College students seeking to apply for enrolment in a VETiS course for next year are advised that:
- Students who will be commencing Year 10 studies or VCE studies next year may only apply for entry to a VETiS course that is delivered on a Tuesday.
- Students who will be undertaking a VCAL program next year may apply for entry to a VETiS course that is delivered on a Tuesday OR a Wednesday.
- Although in previous years a bus has been provided for students to access VET courses timetabled on a Tuesday, significant timetabling changes have taken place which will affect the viability of providing buses for all classes. Any student attending a course that commences at 8 or 9am will be required to make their own way to their VET course provider. Pending viability, students attending courses that commence at 1pm may be provided one way only from Lyndhurst SC to the VETiS provider each Tuesday. A charge of $90 for bus transport applies (in addition to materials charge for the VETiS course.) All Year 10-12 students (excluding VCAL) will be expected to utilise the bus transport provided as they will require transport from Lyndhurst on Tuesday to attend their VET course. VCAL students may utilise the bus to get to TAFE if this is more convenient
- Where final materials charges for VETiS courses are not confirmed at the time of course counselling day, enrolment application forms must be accompanied by payment of a fee based on this year’s materials charges. When final costing is known, students will receive a refund of monies owed if the materials charge is less than the expected charge or arrangements will be made for payment of additional monies if materials charges set by training providers have increased.
- All enrolment applications lodged with Chisholm Institute require payment of a non-refundable administrative fee. Currently the non-refundable administrative fee is $50. This figure may increase for next year’s enrolments.
- If a VET course is not offered from the list below that you would like to do but you have found an alternative provider and it fits with your timetable, please enquire at the Careers Room
Students who choose to apply for enrolment in a VET course will be required to complete relevant forms and make necessary payments at the College General Office before the individual Course Counselling appointments in July/August this year.
Some VETiS courses require additional enrolment requirements. Unless stated otherwise, VETiS courses are two years duration and materials charges must be paid each year.
The following VETiS programs are offered to Lyndhurst SC students for study next year. The delivery of these programs will be subject to viable student numbers; payment of necessary costs, and all enrolment requirements being met.
