Students in year 11 and year 12 at Seaford Secondary College have access to a range of vocational pathways programs to support them in their chosen careers.

Students will be able to achieve their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) whilst learning skills and working toward an industry-accredited qualification.

Vocational pathways can provide:

  • credit towards SACE Stage 1 and Stage 2
  • credit towards a recognised VET qualification
  • pathways to apprenticeships, traineeships, further education or training and direct employment
  • introductions to emerging industries or industries experiencing skills shortages
  • literacy, numeracy, career development and practical vocational experiences.

Seaford Secondary College is a member of the Southern Adelaide and Fleurieu Secondary Schools Alliance (SAFSSA). Students have the opportunity to apply for courses offered in participating SAFSSA schools and would travel to the host school for one day per week to undertake a VET course.

Students can also access a range of other VET courses from registered training organisations such as MADEC and TAFESA.


Students can do an apprenticeship or training while still at school; spending their week in a combination of school, working at business and skills training at TAFE or another registered training provider. This can be considered as a part time start to a full time apprenticeship.


The VET and Careers Team at Seaford are committed to providing our students with support and advice about pathways and transitioning from school to work. Whether it is a short course, a certificate qualification, university, work experience, apprenticeship or traineeship.

If you would like to know more, please email Ms Deb Scotton (SACE & VET Pathways Leader) at

The Australian Apprenticeships Pathways website is a good starting point for students considering an apprenticeship.
