Know Your Rights before Applying for a Vocational Education & Training (VET) Course

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a great way to gain the fundamental skills and knowledge you need to get started in your career, or to build on your existing skills and knowledge to advance your career.

There’s a lot to think about when you’re looking to study a Vocational Education and Training (VET) course. You have rights and responsibilities you need to be aware of like course costs, your finance options, including VET FEE-HELP, study modes, intake and census dates and much, much more.

Recently the ABC TV show ‘The Checkout’ aired a segment called ‘An expensive lesson’. We think it’s a great, simple to understand guide to VET courses for students and prospective students.
