School to work transition programs (SVETE)


The School to Work Transition Programs developed under SVETE (School plus Vocational Education and Training leads to Employment) is an initiative of DET. These programs aim to improve opportunities for successful transitions of students from school to work through the creation of stronger links between industry, schools, students and vocational education and training.

These programs prepare students for employment while they are still at school, through structured workplace learning.  The programs include a 20 week (one day per week) unpaid work experience placement, as well as completion of an industry endorsed and nationally recognised qualification and a skills portfolio workbook aligned with the student’s chosen career path.

The School to Work Transition Program involves many industries including:
