About VET Delivered in Schools

VET Delivered in Schools refers to Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses undertaken as part of your senior secondary education (they can make up part of your VCE or VCAL). The programs aim to prepare you for further education, training and employment. They can also be a good way to explore different occupations while you are still in high school and test whether you are interested in pursuing a future in that industry. The IMVC is also the RTO for some programs. The relevant RTO is also listed in the course description.

Cluster Schools

The IMVC is made up of three clusters: Inner Melbourne VET Cluster, Eastern Network VET Cluster and Pathways to Success VET Cluster.

Schools interested in becoming a cluster member are requested to contact the VET Project Officer on 9686 2354.

Expression of Interest Process

Application Process

 Expressions of interest for 2020 VET Programs are now open!

The steps below outline the process for submitting an ‘Expression of Interest’ for VET programs delivered in schools.


Read the IMVC VET Handbook and course requirements carefully, select your program and complete the Parental Endorsement Form. This form is located in the back of the IMVC VET Handbook or from your Careers/VET Coordinator, and must be submitted to your Careers/VET Coordinator by the due date as indicated by your school.


Register your application online by clicking on the ‘IMVC VET Portal’ under the ‘Quick Links’ menu on the IMVC website homepage, or click on the ‘VET Student Login’ link below, then click the “Submit a Student Expression of Interest” button to register your application.

Please note that Units 3 & 4/Year 2 students are not automatically enrolled into their second year of the program. Students will need to advise their VET Coordinator or Careers Advisor that they wish to continue their VET program, by the due date as indicated by your school.

Students who do not complete Steps 1 & 2 will not be considered for a VET program facilitated by the IMVC.

VET Student Login


Attend the VET Expo on the 15th of August 2019, and the compulsory information session in Term 4 (information session attendance is for prospective first year and/or Units 1 & 2 students only and parents/guardians). Dates and times for course-specific information sessions are listed at the end of the IMVC VET Handbook. Please contact your Careers/VET Coordinator for assistance with these sessions.

Students who do not attend may not be considered for a VET program. Students who do attend will be given precedence over other applicants, in the case of an overflow in their desired VET program.


There are course fees associated with each program and applicants are advised to contact their VET Coordinator for an estimate of costs. Your school’s Careers/VET Coordinator and/or RTO will confirm your enrolment by Term 4.

Please note: Students will be formally enrolled into programs by the respective RTO either in late November, early December or at the commencement of the following year. For example, Box Hill Institute conducts formal enrolments in late November/early December. Each RTO has a different enrolment process. Please refer to the IMVC VET Handbook for further details.

Information Sessions

First Year or Unit 1 & 2 students expressing an interest in VET programs are required to attend a compulsory parent and student information session. Course content and requirements will be outlined and ample time will be provided to answer questions. Non-attendance at the information session will result in cancellation of expression of interest applications. Please refer to the VET Handbook for dates.
