MSC ASBA & VET Programs

ASBA & VET Programs

Australian School-based Apprenticeships (ASBA) are part of the national Australian Apprenticeships system. Australian Apprenticeships combine practical work on-the-job, with structured off-the-job training to achieve a nationally recognised qualification. ASBAs involve paid employment and training and also provide valuable experience to students, increasing their industry specific knowledge and employability skills.

Students undertaking an ASBA are supported by the college to enroll in a range of courses that meet their individual needs and timetables, as well as to timetable their program to allow for work, training and regular schooling.

VET (Vocational Education and Training) qualifications and ASBAs can contribute towards the VCE. Currently, the VET subjects with scored assessment offered at Mansfield Secondary College include: VET Business and VET Hospitality. Some scored VET subjects are also available through Distance Education.
