Each year the Campaspe Cohuna LLEN celebrate the VET in Schools Certificates offered across the district. Echuca College is a proud provider of VETiS and offers over 12 certificates to students right across the region. Each Wednesday over 300 students participate in VETiS at Echuca College, students from St Josephs Echuca, St Augustines Kyabram, Rochester Secondary College and Cohuna Secondary College. Echuca College values the opportunities VETiS offers to students and believes it enhances an already broad curriculum offered by the College.
In 2016 Echuca College offered the following certificates; VET Automotive, VET Beauty, VET Building and Construction, VET Community Services, VET Electrical Engineering, VET Equine, VET Engineering, VET Hospitality Cookery and Kitchen Operations, VET Indonesian, VET Music Industry, VET Public Safety and VET Sport and Recreation.
The Campaspe Cohuna LLEN VET in Schools Excellence Awards aims to recognise the excellent work being undertaken by students and staff through the VET in Schools program. To be eligible for the awards students must nominate, seek support from their teacher and attend an interview. The process itself is an excellent learning opportunity for students and it is great to see so many students recognised for their efforts.
Echuca College is very proud of all our students who nominated and would like to congratulate the following students who won their category. We would also like to thank all the sponsors and businesses who support the VETiS program.
