The majority of VET courses have a cost associated for either TAFESA, Personal Protective Equipment, Tools or Travel. Please check the course descriptors or the VET and Specialist Program Guide for indicative course costs. EJEHS enrolled students will be required to cover the costs as identified in the course descriptors. Students and Parents/Caregivers will be required to sign a Commitment to Pay form as part of the subject selection process.

Students who undertake a VET course are required to complete a minimum of 70 hours of work placement in a relevant industry sector to their VET course. Some courses require a higher amount of work placement, which will be specified in the course descriptor. For example, Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care requires 120 hours of Work Placement, which will be organised by TAFESA. For all other work placement, students are provided learning support through EJEHS Career Hub or the home school for external students.
