Vocational Education & Training (VET)

St Joseph’s College is recognised as a leader in Vocational Education Training (VET). We focus on empowering students to meet the challenges of the continually evolving world in which they live.

Close connections and partnerships with industry present opportunities for students to develop knowledge and practical skills in an industry simulated setting.

As a Darling Downs Hub School, we are a gateway to the Industry School for Food, Wine and Tourism and the Industry School for Manufacturing and Engineering, Queensland.

VET students exit with real industry skills and a nationally recognised qualification, creating a pathway into many occupations.

Our Youth Trades Skills Centre is a leading facility, giving students access to:

  • A fully equipped commercial kitchen and engineering workshop
  • Improved transition to work or further education and training
  • Industry networking and partnerships
  • Qualified staff who are up to date with the latest industry practices.
