Vocational Pathways

Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a vital part of our diverse curriculum program at MBHS. Students are offered the opportunity to achieve SACE results while gaining industry accreditation for the same work. VET is a way for the students to experience the world of work in a range of occupations whilst still at school. This could take the form of ‘Off the Job Learning’ – which might happen at school or with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) or ‘On the Job Learning’ – which might happen at one or more work places.

Many of the courses we offer are provided through our on-site Lower Murray Trade Training Centre (LMTTC) - a federally funded regional facility located on MBHS Campus.

Students are able to experience a range of courses including:

  • Aged care and disability
  • Agriculture
  • Animal Studies
  • Automotive
  • Building and construction
  • Childcare
  • Conservation and Management
  • Cyber
  • Electrotechnology
  • Entrepreneurial (microbusiness)
  • Hair and Beauty
  • Hospitality
  • Information, Communication and Technology
  • Engineering
  • Screen, media production, gaming and visual effects
  • Thoroughbred Racing

These courses may be at Certificate II or III level.

Students are trained in skills, which will improve their chances of being employed. Many of these skills are useful in a range of careers beyond the course in which they enrol. They leave school with qualifications recognised by both the education system and industry. Students can also gain credit towards Apprenticeships and Traineeships – both school based and part time. Students gain credit towards their SACE and the qualification will be recognised by industry and RTO’s throughout Australia.

VET courses can lead to further study at TAFE, University (including adding to an ATAR score) and/or directly into employment.

The VET courses offered are administered under the Murraylands Student Pathways (MSP) and are designed to establish vocational pathways for students from Regional Schools (including Murray Bridge High School, Mannum Community College, Karoonda Area School, Meningie Area School, Coomandook Area School and Tintinara Area School).
