Other information

Criteria for the endorsement of Board Endorsed VET courses (VET BECs)

The criteria for endorsement of VET BECs are outlined in the Guidelines for Stages 5 and 6  VET Board Endorsed courses.

Stage 5 VET course delivery

Information is available in the Stage 5 VET section.

Stage 5 VET courses can only be delivered by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) with the relevant qualification and units of competency on their scope of registration. Scope of registration can be checked at http://training.gov.au/.

RTOs offering training programs for the delivery and assessment of the Manufacturing (Pathways) Stage 5 VET course must meet the requirements of the VET Quality Framework, the MSM Manufacturing Training Package and the Stage 5 course.

Information about the delivery of VET courses by RTOs other than school system RTOs or TAFE NSW is contained on the ACE website.

Non-government schools outsourcing delivery of HSC VET courses to external providers also need to refer to the Registered and Accredited Individual Non-government Schools (NSW) Manual or Registration Systems and Member Non-government Schools (NSW) Manual.

Allocation of indicative hours of credit

Units of competency drawn from Training Packages are not defined in terms of duration. The amount of time required by individual students to achieve competency will vary according to their aptitude and experience. Where a training program is designed for delivery by an RTO, the RTO will specify the length of the training program according to the delivery strategies and/or curriculum resources chosen.

However, for the purposes of the RoSA, VET courses must be described in terms of their indicative hours. For this reason, indicative hours have been assigned to each unit of competency. It is emphasised that the assignment of indicative hours does not imply that all students will fulfil all requirements of a unit of competency within these hours. RTOs may determine that additional or fewer hours are required for the achievement of particular competencies. However, this does not alter the indicative hours allocated, only the delivery hours.

Students may need to spend additional time practising skills in a work environment and completing projects and assignments, in order to fulfil Training Package assessment requirements.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and credit transfer within VET courses

Students who have current knowledge, skills or experience relevant to a VET course may be granted credit towards the course requirements.

Find out more about arrangements for RPL and credit transfer within VET courses, including processes, application form and examples of possible scenarios.

Students with special education needs

Students with special education needs may access a VET course in one of two ways:

  • by undertaking the course under regular course arrangements, or
  • by undertaking selected units of competency within the course that have been identified through the collaborative curriculum planning process.

For more information see VET courses and students with special education needs and collaborative curriculum planning advice.
