Options for Study

At Covenant, students may be able to choose the following options for study.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) Courses

Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses provide students with skills, knowledge and experiences to improve their job prospects and prepare them for work and further study after school. With VET Courses, students can get a head start on their career while still at school.

Students will gain work-related skills and experience that are recognised nationally by industry and employers. In many courses, students will be required to complete mandatory work placement in addition to theoretical training, in order to successfully complete the course and gain accreditation.

The following VET courses will be offered at Covenant in 2021-2022
Category B VET Course
Hospitality: Certificate II in Kitchen Operations (SIT20416)
Board Endorsed VET Courses
Exploring Early Childhood: Statement of Attainment, working towards Certificate III in Early Childhood, Education and Care (CHC30113)
Board Endorsed VET Courses
Sport Coaching: Certificate III in Sport Coaching (SIS30712)

VET courses offered at Covenant Christian School incur an additional cost, ranging from $200 to $875. 

For more information about VET courses, VET course assessment, work placement, expectations and VET courses offered at Covenant, please see the VET Courses Information booklet and course brochures

External Vocational Education and Training (EVET) Courses offered at TAFE and other Registered Training Organisations (RTOs)

Also referred to as external VET, TVET and TAFE, these courses cater for special interests not covered in other courses run at Covenant Christian School. They are offered as external study at TAFE NSW and other Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). These courses count towards the HSC and some may also count towards the ATAR (you will need to check specific details of your course of interest). On successful completion, you will gain additional credentials when you finish school, one from NESA and the other from your training provider. EVET Courses include Animal Studies, Construction, Electrotechnology, Entertainment, Human Sevices (Nursing), Information and Digital Technology, Plumbing, Screen and Media, Tourism, and Travel and Events, etc. Please see the Careers Advisor for a full list of courses and further information. 

Important things to consider for EVET Courses: 

  • All EVET courses incur an additional cost, ranging from $2000 to $5500. The cost will vary depending on the course you choose.
  • Any student wishing to study an EVET course will need to organise this with the Careers Advisor and set up a study schedule. 
  • EVET courses offered at TAFE run on a Tuesday afternoon. Students will need to make their own way to and from their training location.

Distance Education

Courses are available to students through Distance Education, and a number of our students have availed themselves of this opportunity. At Covenant, there are four categories of students who may be eligible to study courses in this manner.

  • Students wishing to study a language not offered at Covenant in either Year 9 or 11 can do so through the NSW School of Languages or Saturday School of Community Languages.
  • Students with special medical needs, e.g. students with medical conditions which prevent them from attending school, can apply to Sydney Distance Education High School.
  • Students whose study has been interrupted by transfer from another school, e.g. Covenant does not offer a subject they were studying.
  • Students with a special circumstance, e.g. students whose chosen career prospects are enhanced by the study of a subject that Covenant does not offer.

Christian Education National (iCEN) and Sydney Distance Education High School (SDEHS)

Students have the option of studying courses, not offered at Covenant, through iCEN or SDEHS. These include courses such as Software Design & Development and Agriculture. Students studying in this manner are allocated the prescribed time of study within the school timetable. A staff member will coordinate the receipt and return of work but it is up to the individual student to complete their work. Students are expected to return work regularly, usually one set per week, and complete all set tasks. 

Students will not be eligible for enrolment in courses which are offered at our school but are not available to them because of timetable clashes, unless this is a Language subject.

NSW School of Languages (NSoL) and Saturday School of Community Languages (SSCL)

Students wishing to study a language not offered at Covenant can do so through the NSoL or SSCL. It is the role of the SSCL to teach languages to students who wish to study their background community language to Higher School Certificate level and who are unable to do so in their home school. 

Most of the modern languages offered as HSC subjects can be studied at one or more of these centres. At our nearest centre in Chatswood, the following 2 Unit language courses may be offered (depending on demand): Armenian, Chinese, Dutch, Japanese, Korean, Modern Greek and Polish.

Important things to consider for Distance Education courses: 

  • Any student wishing to study a Distance Education course will need to discuss this with the Deputy Principal Curriculum 7-12, or LOTE Coordinator for language courses, and obtain their approval.
  • Places in Distance Education courses are limited.
  • Students may only study one course through iCEN, NSoL, SDEHS or SSCL. 
  • The Principal must be able to certify that a student applying for Distance Education via iCEN and SDEHS is capable of working independently. There is an online component in most of these courses. A high level of motivation and time management is required for studying these courses.

Additional costs: 

For Year 11 and 12 Distance Education courses, the additional cost to parents is as follows:

  • Christian Education National: $950 per annum per subject
  • Sydney Distance Education High School: $800 per annum per subject
  • NSW School of Languages: $800 per annum per subject
  • Saturday School of Community Languages: no cost
  • 1 Unit Extension courses: $400
