22470VIC Certificate II in Engineering Studies (VET in Schools)

Engineering Studies aims to:

  • Provide pre-employment training and pathways into the engineering industry
  • Provide students with engineering skills e.g. basic machining, fabrication, welding & use of tools
  • Provide experience in, and knowledge of, a range of occupations at engineering trade level
  • Enable students to make more informed choices in the selection of career paths
  • Enable students to gain a recognised credential and credits for further training.
  • Nationally accredited course – 22470VIC Certificate II Engineering Studies
  • VCAL: credits in the Industry Specific Skills Strand and structured work placement in Work Related Skills Strand.
    Applicable to Foundation, Intermediate and Senior VCAL
  • VCE: credit in up to 4 units over 2 years: 2 Units at Unit 1&2 level, and a Unit 3&4 sequence
  • ATAR and Study Score: Students may receive an ATAR contribution for the Unit 3&4 sequence of VCE VET Engineering Studies by undertaking scored assessment to achieve a study score. The study score can contribute directly to the primary four or as a fifth or sixth study.  Scored assessment consists of three coursework tasks and an end of year examination.
