VET at Dominic College

Dominic College is a proud member of the Southern Tasmania Catholic Colleges Trade Training Centre (STCCTTC) consortium. VET has been a part of the Year 7-10 curriculum for over eight years and each year the results are very satisfying.

Two of the courses that students at the College can currently study are:

1. CPC10111 Certificate I in Construction

CPCCVE1011A - Undertake a basic construction project

CPCCOHS1001A - Work safely in the construction industry

CPCCOHS2001A - Apply OHS requirements, policies and procedures in the construction industry

2. MEM20413 Certificate II in Engineering Pathways

MEM13014A - Apply principles of OH&S in the work environment

MEM18001C - Use hand tools

MEMPE002A - Use electric welding machines

Courses like these are very important pathways to future study and employment. Many of the units lead to an extensive variety of careers.

These units are adult accredited courses which can provide a pathway to continued VET study at GYC and are valuable additions to a student’s CV when applying for an apprenticeship or traineeship.

Dominic College is well equipped with a large range of machines, plant equipment and a set of hand tools for each student in the wood and metal workshops of the Br Peter Dezani Design Centre.

The College is fortunate to have third parties who take a keen role in developing the knowledge and progress of our students. These include:

  • The Master Builders Association who will provide a very informative presentation
    for the students coming up on 7 August at the College.
  • BGAS who are involved in the future prospect of employment.
  • Colin Barwick from Tasweld, who shares his expertise in the Welding Unit.
  • GYC representatives at the College Academic Pathways evening on 22 August.

We thank these organisations for partnering with us to ensure our students have a rich learning experience in their VET pathways.

Students who are interested in VET at GYC for 2019 will soon enter the suitability process as part of their enrolment. Please contact the VET Coordinator Mrs Kinne,, or our VET Teacher Mr Mangione,, for any further information.
