The YMCA Trade Skills Centre offers Vocational Education and Training (VET) programs. These programs equip students with nationally recognised qualifications, as part of their high school education.
As a result, young people have the opportunity to gain skills and capabilities, required to successfully gain employment and kick start their careers.
A wide range of Certificate opportunities are available to year 10, 11 and 12 students enrolled in school, under the VETis government funding scheme.

Ashley had no employment history and a low level of formal education when she enrolled to study through the Get Set for Work program. The young woman completed two work experience placements, one of which she was offered paid employment. As a result, she is now empowered to work towards her goals to financially support her family and study at university. Ashley says she loved the course’s safe and educational environment where she made new friends and was supported to learn at her own pace.
