Vocational Education & Training

Vocational Education and Training (VET) enables students to gain qualifications for all types of employment, and specific skills to help them in the workplace. VET provides students with a worthwhile start to their careers.

VET is a nationally recognised system, and all qualifications gained are accepted throughout Australia. We aim to ensure students can gain the necessary skills to gain employment and to open pathways for further studies.

Certificate and Statement of Attainment Replacement Information

This RTO maintains a Register of Certification Documents kept for 30 years from the date of issue. This allows students to request a reissue of their documentation if required. Good Counsel College ensures that documentation is stored securely in an accessible electronic format. The process to request a reissue of documentation is as follows:

  • All requests for a replacement qualification or Statement of Attainment must be in writing (email is acceptable) from the student to the Trade Training Centre Director;
  • The RTO will access the archived records/Register of Certification Documentation to access the required documentation;
  • The replacement documentation will identify that it is a re-issued version as well as follow all requirements for printing and issuing qualifications and Statements of Attainment;
  • The replacement documentation will be issued within 30 working days of receipt of the written request.
