Australind Senior High School

Australind Senior High School (Australind SHS) Registered Training Organisation (RTO – National Code 50533) advertises VET courses in an ethical manner. Only courses and qualifications on the RTO Scope of Registration (www.training.gov.au) and approved by the Western Australian Training Accreditation Council (WA TAC) and School curriculum standards Authority (SCSA) are advertised.


Through Endeavour, Success”


“Australind Senior High School will provide an environment that allows each student the opportunity to value endeavour, achieve success and to exhibit care and respect.”


Admission to VET programs at Australind Senior High School utilises a selection process that gives the student every opportunity to access our Vocational Programs.

There is a general prerequisite of a C grade or better in English and Mathematics.  However, candidates will be selected on merit, based on interest, commitment and work habits.

Students are counselled before admission to help with selections; this ensures that students from a wide range of social, economic and educational backgrounds have equal access to the VET programs.

Students must be prepared to attend regularly, participate in all activities, be committed to success and take personal responsibility.


A list of charges is attached to students’ booklists and given to students prior to the commencement of the course.  Fees are collected and safeguarded according to the Financial Management Regulations 2007 (WA) and as per the Contributions Charges and Fees Manual (Department of Education).


Australind Senior High School advertises its VET courses in an ethical manner. Only those courses and qualifications we are registered to deliver and assess by the Training Accreditation Council and School Curriculum Standards Authority (SCSA) will be advertised.

As a Registered Training Organisation, Australind Senior High School Registered is able to deliver and assess nationally recognised training qualifications and must meet national standards.

The following courses are offered through Australind SHS RTO:

On successful completion of the course, Australind SHS RTO issues a nationally recognised qualification at Certificate II level. For students completing part of a course the RTO issues a nationally recognised “Statement of Attainment” for all required units that are successfully completed. This allows the student to use the course or partial course as a stepping stone to a higher qualification or employment.

In addition to the above courses Australind SHS also provides training courses through auspicing arrangements with the following external RTO providers using Australind SHS staff and facilities.

iVET RTO ID 40448

In the unlikely event that Australind SHS is unable to complete delivery of any of the above courses the school will seek alternative arrangements to ensure students can complete their course.


Students can be expected to be engaged in practical learning activities, which will maximise their future training pathways and career options.

Australind Senior High School has the materials, facilities and appropriately trained staff to deliver within its scope of nationally recognised training.

Staff at Australind Senior High School are committed to students being provided with a learning environment that adheres to a strict Code of Conduct.

Students receive an Assessment and Delivery Plan for their training program.  This plan will show what competencies will be assessed, where and when the assessment will occur, and the assessment methods to be used.

All VET courses are delivered over two years (4 terms in Year 11 and 3 terms in Year 12).  Workplace learning placement (work experience) is organised by the Workplace Coordinator for each student each year, who has a comprehensive network of employers keen to take our students.


Australind Senior High School has a Complaints and Appeals Policy Procedure.  Complaints and appeals will be dealt with fairly, efficiently and effectively; with the intention of resolving the complaint/appeal as early as possible.  A student may appeal against an assessment result and if successful in their appeal, they will have the opportunity for reassessment.


Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process whereby the skills you have acquired from life, work experience; formal or informal training can be formally acknowledged and recognised. RPL can apply to one or more Units of Competency or even a whole course.


 As a Registered Training Organisation, Australind Senior High School recognises the AQF qualifications and statements of attainment issued by other registered training organisations.  Credit is the value assigned for the recognition of equivalence in content and learning outcomes between different types of learning and/or qualifications.


Australind Senior High School follows a whole school approach of a caring school.  Thus all VET students have full access to the full range of welfare and guidance services.
