Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Schools program are delivered as part of a broad, general education that combines study towards the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) with a nationally recognised VET qualification within the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF).

Thornlie Senior High School is committed, through its administration and VET staff, to offer the best and most comprehensive range of subjects available.

Thornlie Senior High School gained status as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in 2005.

As an RTO, Thornlie SHS delivers National Competencies which are recognised by TAFE and industry. Competencies completed will attract TAFE exemption and gain selection points for TAFE entry.

In order to complete the requirements of all certificates, students must attend a minimum of 90% of scheduled classes. Students who choose to study this course in Year 11 must continue the course in Year 12.

All certificates have a work-based component where students will be required to demonstrate competency in any given workplace.

A range of learning strategies in a variety of learning environments will be used in order to cater for differences in learning styles, learning interests and needs, and variations in learning opportunities (including online). Students will be provided with further information in the Learning and Assessment Strategy in each course package.

Workplace Learning is an integral part of each VET Program. Students will attend the workplace for one two week block during the year, at a time specified by the school.


A flexible and innovative training program which provides skills to help students reach their potential and improve their employment outcomes.


In line with The Department of Education policy, to have VET students complete a full Certificate II by the end of Year 12.

As an RTO and a High School, Thornlie Senior High School is able to deliver Qualifications up to Certificate III.  Higher Qualifications are delivered through TAFE or University and private RTOs.

On completion of the requirements defined in the Training Package, a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) may issue a nationally recognised AQF qualification.

Statement of Attainment

Where a qualification is partially achieved through the achievement of one or more units of competency, an RTO may issue a Statement of Attainment.

RTOs must recognise the achievement of competencies as recorded on a qualification or Statement of Attainment issued by other RTOs.  Given this, recognised competencies can progressively build towards a full qualification.

Students who have a Statement of attainment from another RTO may list this information on the VET enrolment form and present the original document to the Careers Centre.


 All students who are enrolled in certificate courses at Thornlie SHS require the Unique Student Identifier number. If a student does not have a USI, we are unable to issue the Certificate or Statement of Attainment, and therefore the student will receive no credit for their course.

The USI is a reference number made up of numbers and letters that gives students access to their USI account, allowing an individual to see all of their training results from all providers including all completed training units and qualifications.

The USI will make it easier for students to find and collate their VET achievements into a single authenticated transcript. It will also ensure that students’ VET records are not lost.

The USI is available online and at no cost to the student. This USI will stay with the student for life and be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course that is completed. Please go to the following website and complete the process:

Once your child has obtained the USI, they are required to bring a copy of the number to the Careers Centre.
