The recent pandemic has been drastically changing the Australian job market. While some industries may downsize their workforce, many booming industries continue to recruit new workers. This is a perfect time to upskill and open up new career opportunities, especially if your job has been impacted.
How does studying a VET course help?
VET courses are a perfect way to transition into a new career, let’s look at several key benefits:
1) Acquiring Specific Skills
Businesses are increasingly on the lookout for candidates that have the right qualification and skills specific to their industries. Studying a VET course allows you to gain competencies and workplace skills that give you the advantage over others. You will be work-ready and have a higher chance in gaining employment in the new field.
2) Flexible Study Options
In addition to face-to-face delivery, many courses now offer the flexibility to study online or in a mixed mode. You can complete your course around other work and family commitments at a time and place that suits you. For those who wish to finish their course as quickly as possible, self-paced study can offer you the additional advantage so that you can enter the job market equipped with a qualification sooner.
3) Further Education
If you find that you wish to continue into further education, a VET course can be used as a pathway for entry into most universities in Australia. Many find that starting straight with a degree can be overwhelming, a VET course will prepare you to ease into higher tertiary education as well as gaining credits for entrance, giving you a head start.
