If you choose to do a VET qualification that is not from a VCE VET program, you may be eligible for credit towards your VCE or VCAL. This is called block credit recognition. To receive block credit recognition, the qualification must be at certificate II level or above.
Credit towards the VCE or VCAL
VCE Credit received for a non-VCE VET program is decided by the level and the nominal hours of the qualification. For each VCE Unit, 90 nominal hours of training is required. A VET certificate at level II can provide credit for Units 1 and 2. A VET certificate at level III or above can provide credit for Units 1 to 4.
These qualifications provide credit towards the VCAL based on the level of the certificate and hours of training completed. A VET certificate at level II or above can provide credit towards all levels of VCAL. A VET certificate at level I can provide credit at Foundation and Intermediate levels.
When you receive a Units 3 and 4 sequence towards your VCE, they may contribute towards the calculation of your ATAR by VTAC. Check with the VET coordinator at your school.
You will receive a certificate or statement of attainment from your registered training organisation for the VET training you have completed.
