VET Construction Now Offered for Year 11 and 12

VET Construction is a new subject at Cranbrook and it gives the students the industry learning while still remaining at school. After the students have completed Years 11 and 12 they have the potential of walking away with a Certificate 2 in Construction Pathways; provided they are competent in both the practical and theory elements.

A VET course is competency-based, which means that your son’s assessments are based off standards set in the industry. For each unit your son is deemed competent or not yet competent. Your son will have the option of completing the HSC external examination if they would like this course to count towards their ATAR.

While completing these competencies students will make the following:

As part of this subject you son will complete their White card, which allows for them to go onto work sites and is primarily relevant for when they complete work placement. Your son will complete 70 hours of work placement, broken down into two one-week blocks of 35 hours each. They will complete a work placement in Year 11 and Year 12, organised by the school through a private provider.

Your son will be given a uniform to wear during Construction class and while they are on work placement, this will consist of a Hi-Vis shirt, tool belt and necessary tools – this will be a part of the subject fee that is billed to your account at the end of each term. A pair of steel cap boots is a necessary item due to the Workplace Health and Safety legislation.
