Cape Naturaliste College
At Cape Naturaliste College Vocational Programs have been developed to prepare students for further training at TAFE (or other training organisations) and/or the workforce. The Vocational Programs are structured to provide the best possible preparation for students who know they want to work in the careers covered in the programs.
When students select a Vocational Program they will undertake a “package” of courses and qualifications.
Successful completion of one of these programmes will allow the student to achieve their WACE as well as receive a national training qualification and undergo training in a real workplace. Logical pathways for students who undertake these programs include: full-time enrolment in higher level TAFE courses, Apprenticeships/Traineeships or employment.
Workplace Learning (Endorsed Program) is an important component of the Vocational Programs and aims to provide students with the knowledge, workplace skills and attitudes within work environments, as a preparation for employment. Specific technical skills and knowledge learnt during formal education help students gain and keep employment. Students need to demonstrate that they are “work ready” and responsible prior to commencing in the workplace.
This will provide students with skills and qualifications relevant to a range of trades; including automotive, metals, building and construction, electrical, plumbing and carpentry.
Students will also complete English and Maths courses with content tailored to develop skills relevant to the students’ career aspirations. The work place learning component of the program teaches students about the work place and provides opportunity to develop and consolidate skills and understandings in the workplace.
