Vocational Education and Training (VET) - RTO 30399

Vocational education and training (VET) enables students to gain qualifications for all types of employment, and specific skills to help them in the workplace.
 
Student achievement in accredited vocational education qualifications is based on industry-endorsed competency standards and is recorded on the Senior Certificate. The Senior Certificate is recognised within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), and this may give advanced standing towards a traineeship or apprenticeship and/or credit on entry to courses at TAFE Institutes and other registered training organisations.
 
VET Qualifications contribute to the Queensland Certificate of Education if the required standard is reached.
 
Mirani State High School offers the following VET subjects to students: 
  • Year 10 - 12
  • Certificate 1 in Business BSB10115
  • Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways FSK20113
  • Certificate II in Business BSB20115.
All students are provided with a VET Student Information Handbook (PDF, 603KB) on enrolment in a VET course.
 
In partnership with external RTOs, Mirani State High School is able to offer the ICA20115 Certificate II in Information, Digital Media Technology (Delivered in collaboration with TEIA Limited RTO Number 5811).
 

Unique student identifier (USI)

The USI (Unique Student Identifier) was introduced nationally on 1 January 2015 for all students studying VET qualifications.  The school is not permitted to issue Statements of Attainment or Certificates unless students have a USI recorded with Mirani State High School. After students obtain an USI, they must provide the Head of Senior Schooling with the USI number.
 
Details about obtaining and reporting a USI to the school is outlined in the following documents:

Complaints and appeals policy

Mirani State High School has a Complaints and Appeals Policy that applies to all students studying a VET course. See the VET student handbook.
