VET Allied Health

Our Allied Health students have been working hard this year and have achieved so much both online and in the classroom. As the second year students prepare for their VCAA exam, our first year students have enjoyed their return to the classroom. We have finally been able to complete some of the practical elements of the course including how to assist patients with movement. The first year students have learnt how to move bed bound patients, including using a mechanical hoist. They have demonstrated their competencies in teaching patients to walk with frames and walking sticks and can safely use the wheelchair.

As the year comes to an end we are fortunate that some of our students are able to continue with their Structured Workplace Learning placement in health clinics, and I look forward to catching up with these students while they are gaining invaluable experience in the workplace.

VET Sport and Recreation

The students of Sport and Recreation are closing in on completing the first half of a 2 year course. At the end of the course students will receive a Certificate III in Sport and Recreation! They will also receive a study score which will go towards their ATAR score.

This year the focus has been on building the foundational skills of what it would be like to work in the Sport and Recreation industry including providing customer service, teaching others how to perform skills, and planning and conducting sport and recreation events.

While online, students worked well in groups to create videos to show their competency, which included teaching a family member a skill and giving them feedback on what they did well and how to improve.

With the completion of this course, students can use their qualification to pursue careers in the health and fitness field such as sport coaching, customer service, leisure services, and forms of teaching. This qualification also gives students the potential to enhance their studies at University or TAFE.
