TVET courses are ‘dual accredited’ courses – meaning they count as units of study towards both your HSC and a nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training qualification. Most TVET courses also provide credit towards further TAFE NSW or university studies.

Understanding TVET

TVET courses are open to Turramurra High School students in Years 11 or 12. They form part of your HSC subject options and cover everything from automotive trades, business services and construction, to sport and recreation and visual arts.

TVET course delivery

Your TVET course will be delivered at a local TAFE campus (THS uses the following TAFE campuses: Hornsby, Meadowbank, St Leonards, Bradfield, Ryde, Ultimo).
You will need to regularly attend classes and complete the set assessments. Most courses take between one and two years to complete and most classes may also extend outside of school hours. 

Contribution towards your HSC and ATAR

All TVET courses count towards your HSC, however different TVET course types contribute different amounts of credit.
TVET Industry Curriculum Framework (ICF) courses may also contribute to your ATAR, allowing you to apply for university.
You may select only one TVET ICF course to contribute towards your ATAR. 

TVET course categories

Board developed courses: 

Industry Curriculum Framework courses contribute to your HSC and allow you to sit an optional examination which can contribute to your ATAR. 

Board endorsed courses:

Board endorsed courses contribute to your Record of School Achievement or HSC, but will not count towards your ATAR.

How to apply for TVET courses
