The East Adelaide School’s Cluster (EASC) represents the collaborative partnership and regional provision of Vocational Education and Training (VET) across all schooling sectors in the East of Adelaide. Comprising of 18 schools and a range of training partners, the EASC compile courses that compliment students interests, school specialisations, regional and national skill shortage areas and experience that lead to the development of transferable skills.
For 2018 the EASC continues to offer a broad range of courses across a variety of learning environments for senior students to study.
  • EASC schools have made the commitment to deliver most programs on a Thursday.
  • EASC schools have agreed to avoid the setting of exams, starting new work, holding excursions or key practical sessions on the agreed VET days.
  • VET courses will be held across a range of settings from schools, purpose built skill centres, TAFE sites, on the job or a combination
  • Marryatville High supports the cost of VET courses offered by the EASC cluster.

Students wishing to apply for any of these courses need to make an appointment to meet with Mrs Laura Hudson, Coordinator - Pathways and Wellbeing. Parents must attend this course selection meeting.

The SACE credits earned from VET courses are determined by SACE Board's VET Recognition Register. The actual number of SACE credits granted to an individual student is dependent on the units of competency undertaken, and their associated nominal hours, that are completed by the student towards the qualification. Students will earn 5 SACE credits for the completion of 35 nominal hours of VET and 10 SACE credits for the completion of 70 nominal hours of VET, up to the maximum credit allocation, for the qualification. Further information is available on the VET Recognition Register Information Sheet and more detailed information will be available to students in term 4 of 2017. Students who successfully gain a place in a VET course for 2018 will be re-counselled in term 4 to ensure the credits and their subject pattern are considered in their overall SACE plan.
