Vocational opportunities…

North Eastern Vocational Opportunities (NEVO) is a partnership made up of Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) and non-DECD secondary schools, which provide a wide range of Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses to Year 10, 11 and 12 students in North East Adelaide.

The job-related courses will increase pathway options for students through the provision of VET choices linked to the Industry Pathways Program. In collaboration with the North East Trade School for the Future, NEVO provides curriculum and learning choices, which support all students in these schools to achieve the SACE and to provide pathways, which lead all students to further education, training and/or employment.

NEVO VET courses are hosted by schools and Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) and are available for students from DECD and non DECD schools to enrol in. Students stay enrolled at their Home School, and attend the Host School or RTO for their NEVO VET course.

What are the benefits of choosing a NEVO VET course?

Gaining a nationally – recognised qualification while a student completes their SACE.  Getting a head start in their chosen career.  Making senior school study more relevant and interesting.  Providing opportunities to learn ‘on the job’ through workplace learning and  gaining the skills and knowledge that employers look for.

A NEVO course also provides pathways into apprenticeships, traineeships (including school-based apprenticeships and traineeships) further education and training and direct employment. Upon completion of a NEVO VET Course, students wishing to continue their training pathway can do so through a school-based apprenticeship: only DECD school students can meet with the Apprenticeship Broker to discuss their options.

For more information please visit www.nevo.sa.edu.au (under School-Based Apprenticeships). The Training Guarantee for SACE Students (TGSS): SACE students can undertake VET training at an approved Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in certain qualifications, and have a guaranteed training place after completing SACE to finish the qualification they have started. For more information, speak to your VET Coordinator about completing an application Education and Training Plan and visit www.skills.sa.gov.au

Can it count towards SACE?

The flexibility of the SACE enables students to include a significant amount of VET in their SACE studies. The SACE credit information is shown in each VET Course. Please refer to the information in this brochure and also on the Nevo website website under NEVO VET Courses. Please also speak to your VET Coordinator for more information about VET in the SACE, or visit the SACE Board website.
