Apprenticeships & Traineeships
Build the skills employers want and get paid while you're studying. We offer Pre-apprenticeships, Apprenticeships, and Traineeships across a range of industries, allowing you to combine formal training from GOTAFE with on-the-job training from an employer.
We work with local industries and employers to make sure we're teaching you the skills you'll need in the workforce, so you'll graduate ready to tackle whatever your career has in store.Learn about Apprenticeships & more
A pathway for everyone
Whether you're looking for a more practical alternative to VCE, or you want to undertake some extra study while you complete your schooling, we have study options for you.
We work with local high schools to provide pathways for students looking for something different. Whatever your goals are, we've got the courses to get you there.
If you're looking for a more practical alternative to VCE, the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) might be for you. VCAL courses are focused on real-life outcomes, so whether you're already working part-time, or want to build practical skills to prepare you for a career in industry, you can earn credits for the work you're doing both inside and outside the classroom.Find out more about VCAL
VETDSS in Schools
If you're looking to get a head-start in your future career, the Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETDSS) program is for you. VETDSS allows you to study a nationally recognised TAFE qualification alongside your Year 10, VCAL, or VCE studies, and give you the opportunity to explore and gain new skills in the industries and career paths that interest you.Find out more about VETDSS
