Help school students get a head start while at school
To deliver subsidised training to school students in South Australia, training providers must comply with the 'VET for School Students Guidelines for Training Providers'.
The guidelines apply to institutionally delivered and school-based traineeship/apprenticeship courses.
What courses are subsidised?
Subsidised courses are identified in the 'VET for school students list'.
Access to approved subsidised courses for school students is through the VET Readiness Orientation (VETRO) Upfront Assessment of Need process (VETRO UAN process).
School student referral to VET
A school student referral to VET form is required for any school student seeking to access subsidised training and is initiated by the school of enrolment.
For information on how to use and complete the form refer to the instructional guide.
Referrals for school students who seek access to a course delivered outside of a training contract must include evidence of completion of a relevant VET pathway as part of their eligibility. The evidence guide provides important information for schools, training providers and school students on the range of activities and forms of evidence.

Conducting the VETRO UAN process
The VET Readiness Orientation Upfront Assessment of Need (VETRO UAN) process must be conducted with all school students seeking access to subsidised training.
Training providers can access referrals initiated by schools through VETRO reports via the Skills and Employment Portal.
For more information on how to access and use the VETRO reports to help track, monitor, manage and create reports, watch the short instruction video and read the 'VETRO frequently asked questions'.
