Stage 6 Study Pathways

Students in Stage 6 have the opportunity to tailor their schooling to meet their needs, including the ability to undertake an EVET, SBAT or traineeship while still working towards their HSC qualifications.


EVET courses allow you to get a head start on your career and complete an Externally Delivered Vocational Education and Training (EVET) course, while you’re still at school working towards your HSC qualifications.

All EVET courses allow you build practical skills and develop industry-specific knowledge, while still counting towards your school outcome, with some courses contributing towards an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).
