DARE2B Youth Conference
Dare2B Youth Conference provides young people with an opportunity to explore their full potential including education and career pathway options but also links to the importance of how a healthy body and mind will contribute to their success.

VET in Schools
Stride acts as conduit between the training provider and the school. This provides both parties with one contact point for the provision of the VET in Schools program. This allows for smooth communication for schools, teachers, training organisations and trainers with any issues that may arise with the VET Programs and the associated administrative obligations. Vocational Education and Training (VET) enables a secondary student to combine education with training to provide occupational or work-related knowledge and skills.
Features of VET Programs:-
- Focuses on students developing industry specific and workplace skills
- Generally completed during Years 11 & 12 however some schools allow students to start a VET program in Year 10
- Training is one day per-week either in a morning or afternoon or for some programs all day. VET training usually occurs on a Wednesday however this will vary with some programs
- Training is usually held at a TAFE or a smaller training venue. In some cases it may be held at a school or a workplace for some of the time
- Students can complete a VET program as part of their VCE or their VCAL senior school certificates
- Prepares students to the standard expected from employers and industry
- Student’s receive a Certificate acknowledging completion of a nationally recognised training course
