Hospitality VET – Cookery


Vocational Education and Training or VET offers a faster job-focused pathway to a career compared to a three-year bachelor’s degree. VET provides students with first-hand experience in the workplace through an apprenticeship or traineeship. This gives them the right skills for the world and allows them quicker entry into paid work.

VET qualifications can provide students with a choice of more than 500 careers. Students can pursue a VET qualification through a public provider, like TAFE NSW, or a private provider.

What courses does VET include?

Unlike going to university, students don’t need an ATAR to do a VET course.

There may be minimum qualifications, but they may relate more to other factors, such as knowledge, skills and other relevant qualities.

VET courses cover a broad range of industries, such as:

·         tourism & hospitality

In TAS we offer stage 6 Hospitality Cookery.
