External VET (EVET) Courses


While many students enrol full-time at Southern Cross Catholic Vocational College, some courses are also offered on one block session per week (usually in the afternoon) so that students from other schools can attend part-time as external students. The timetable of classes being held in 2019 is shown here.

Calendars for 2019 EVET classes can be found here:

The following EVET courses are being offered in 2020 to Year 10, Year 11 and Year 12 students. Most courses are 240 hour courses and run over 2 years.

In some cases students can also undertake additional training in courses related to courses being completed at their own school or in addition to an existing EVET course, enabling them to either extend their competency or even complete the full Certificate III qualification in that course. These courses are an additional 120 hours, over one year.

  • Construction (120 hours)
  • Hospitality (Catering Operations) (120 hours)
  • Hospitality (Food and Beveridge) (120 hours)
