Upfront assessment of need process including VETRO
The VET Readiness Orientation (VETRO) process is a subset of the UAN and is used for school students seeking access to a subsidised training place. VETRO is triggered by a referral to training from a school to a training provider. On receipt of the referral, the training provider will conduct the upfront assessment of need in accordance with the updated UAN Guidelines (Incorporating VETRO for School Students) and the Process Map for Eligibility, Entitlement and Conducting VETRO.
Following eligibility and entitlement confirmation, training providers can proceed to conduct the assessment of need in accordance with the Upfront of Need Assessment (UAN) Guidelines. Training providers should ensure that they have read and understood how VETRO differs from the UAN to ensure they remain complaint under their Funded Activities Agreement.
There are a range of tools, guides, fact sheets and webinar recordings to support you with the UAN and VETRO process in the Toolkit.
School Student Referral to VET form
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.
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 Frequently Asked Questions.
