  Expressions of Interest
• VET programs are all extremely popular and you may miss out on
a place if you don’t fill in an ‘Expression of Interest’ form & return
it to Jenny Marks ASAP.

• This form does not take the place of a TAFE application form
though. For all off campus VET courses – a separate TAFE
application form must be submitted via your current Careers
Teacher/ VET Coordinator – usually by the end of September.

• More information (and the appropriate forms) can be found by
going to the Sandringham College website and following the links
to VET (via Senior Campus & Curriculum) or go to:
                                                  Things to

• Early Expressions of Interest are really important to secure placement
in a VET program as TAFE places fill fast.

• Many VET Programs involve one day per week out of the school -
either at a TAFE or in a workplace and involve additional costs.

• Sandringham College works with other transitional organisations like
Youth Connect to facilitate Work Placement, a vital part of a VET program
