Mitcham Girls High School

Vocational Education Training (VET)

We work collaboratively with neighbouring schools, TAFE SA and private RTOs to enable students to access VET Certificate courses. 

VET courses are made up of units of work (competencies) that are nationally recognised.  Most VET courses are accredited as part of the SACE.  Parents must be aware that performance in all other subjects affects the results of the VET subject, particularly at Stage 2 (Year 12).  Information regarding available courses can be accessed at isca.eschoolsolutions.com.au or read the attached booklet from the Inner South Curriculum Alliance.  Many more courses are available from TAFE SA and private RTOs.

Careers

Websites for Parents as Career Partners:  There are a multitude of websites designed to help people find information about employment, careers, education and training. The websites in the link are a ‘snapshot’ of those available. 

The Mitcham Girls Careers website www.mitchamgirlscareers.com provides valuable career investigations, quizzes and general information about careers, SACE, VET, work placements, gap years, resumés, youth allowance and much more is now available to all Mitcham students and families.

Year 7 Intake

The Department for Education has short-listed Mitcham Girls High School as a potential pilot school to ‘Lead the Way’ and offer Year 7 in a high school setting from 2020. We have been shortlisted because of our focus in progressive approaches to quality teaching and learning, our safe and supportive environment and our extensive transition program. Participation in the pilot is voluntary, therefore whether the pilot program goes ahead is dependent on the number of parents who register an interest for their current Year 6 children to enrol at Mitcham Girls High School in 2020. Registrations of Interest to Enrol close on 24 May 2019.
