Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS)

HLT23221 | HLT33115

Are you a senior high school student eager to pursue a career in health? Mater Education’s Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) program gives you the opportunity to study on-site at Mater where you will learn about a range of roles in this dynamic industry and gain real-world experience working alongside qualified healthcare professionals in acute hospital settings.

The program has been designed by our expert team of medical educators, giving you knowledge and skills in some key foundation areas such as medical terminology, anatomy, and communication. Over six months (two school terms) the program sees students complete a HLT23221 Certificate II in Health Support Services, with the option for them to then obtain a HLT33115 Certificate III in Health Services Assistance via a ten week (one term) gap program—setting them up to launch their healthcare careers straight after completing Year 12.

VETiS qualifications are funded by the Queensland Government’s VET Investment budget. VETiS funding allows students to undertake nationally recognised vocational education and training (VET) qualifications while they are still at school. The HLT23221 Certificate II in Health Support Services is listed on the Queensland Government’s Priority Skills list for VETiS funded delivery by approved pre-qualified suppliers.
