Trade Training Courses

Trade Training courses are for students who want to get a HSC and at the same time prepare for work in a trade apprenticeship or traineeship. It is also for students who have a genuine interest in a trade and recognise the benefits of developing skills and knowledge in that area.

A student may do a number of Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses as long as they meet Board of Studies requirements for the HSC. A student must present 6 units of Board Developed Courses with English being compulsory. A student must present a pattern of study that includes 12 units in Year 11 and 10 units in Year 12. The Trade Training courses offered at Saint Yon are VET courses and are known as Curriculum Framework Subjects – they are Board Developed Courses.

It is also important to know that only 2 units of VET subjects can be used towards a students best 10 units for the calculation of an ATAR. Therefore most students wanting to follow an ATAR pathway of study only do one VET subject.

Many students however do not want to go straight to University and follow a NON-ATAR pathway of study. In this instance, more than one VET subject can be studied.
