Does this sound like you...?
Are you interested in combining “hands on” vocational training alongside school? Or maybe you are planning for your future. We have a range of courses targeted at students aged between 15-18 years to help you realise your potential and set you on the path to success. Best of all, you don’t need an ATAR to kick-start your career.
Looking for an alternative to School-based VCE?
The VPC & VCE Vocational Major are hands-on, practical alternatives to School-based VCE (Year 11 & 12). These courses will connect you to industry experiences and active participation in the community.
Want to kickstart your career?
If you're looking to get a head start in your future career, the VET Delivered to Secondary Students (VETDSS) program is for you. Study a nationally recognised qualification as part of your secondary schooling.
Pathways to university
What a lot of people don’t realise is that you can achieve your dream career without an ATAR, and many TAFE courses can act as a stepping stone towards a university degree.
Starting your post-school studies at GOTAFE can make the transition a little less daunting, and you get to work, learn and live locally whilst you start the process of engaging with Higher Education.
GOTAFE is both proud and fortunate to have partnerships with Charles Sturt University and La Trobe University to provide established pathways from a GOTAFE qualification to a University Degree.See how GOTAFE can be part of your journey to university
