University and TAFE partnerships

Jamison High School is committed to supporting parents and families. We encourage parents to regularly visit our school career website to view up-to-date information and opportunities to engage with child development experts and other parents.

TAFE-delivered vocational education and training (TVET)

The Higher School Certificate (HSC) allows students to undertake study in a variety of vocational areas that provide work-related skills and knowledge.

These vocational education and training (VET) courses count as units of study towards the HSC and many can also be used in the calculation of the Australian Tertiary Admissions Ranking (ATAR).

For further information: seek advice from your careers advisor or visit the South Western Sydney Institute TVET website.

School-based apprenticeships or traineeships

A school-based apprenticeship (SBA) or traineeship (SBT) combines paid work with TAFE training and school.

The SBA option is equivalent to the first year of a full-time apprenticeship, whilst an SBT will provide a certificate of proficiency in the traineeship area - a great start to post-school career options.

Both of these options allow students to obtain valuable work skills and experience whilst undertaking paid part-time work as part of their HSC study.

If you would like to know more, we encourage you to contact your careers advisor or the TVET unit at South Western Sydney Institute of TAFE.
