VET (Years 10-12)

VET Studies

HCCS Secondary is a member of the Adelaide Hills Student Pathways (AHSPs) group of schools in the Adelaide Hills who work together to provide Vocational Education and Training (VET) opportunities for students.

HCCS Secondary currently offers two VET courses in Digital Media:

  • 3D Animation Foundations (Certificate II or partial Certificate III) – which is designed to introduce students to the many career opportunities available for 3D artists, animators and designers in the games, film and visual effects industry. The course concludes in a production unit wherein students will work together to produce a short animated film.
  • Game Design Foundations (Full Certificate III) – will teach students how to develop a game from initial concept to playable demo. The Game Design Foundations course teaches students best practice for iterative game design and emphasises the importance of player feedback. This is the logical next step in the pathway for students looking at a career in this industry.

Other courses previously or currently being undertaken by HCCS students include:

  • Furniture Making
  • Fitness Instructor
  • Doorways to Construction
  • Animal Studies
  • Aged Care
  • Early Childhood Education
  • Hospitality
  • Hair and Make-up
