VET in Schools Agreements

VET in Schools studetns working on a carTAFE SA is keen to work with schools to promote pathways to further training and employment through VET in Schools Agreements.

A VET in Schools Agreement (VISA) is a negotiated agreement where qualified teachers deliver and assess nationally recognised training within the school environment in partnership with TAFE SA.

The VISA document itself is a Memorandum of Administrative Arrangement (MAA), often referred to as a ‘Head Agreement’, that outlines the role, responsibilities and obligations of the school and TAFE SA.  VISAs are for the period 1st January 2015 – 31st December 2017. Only one VISA is required per school, and the document must be signed by the school Principal and the TAFE SA delegate.

A VISA Schedule is a sub-agreement to the VISA and lists the:

  • Units of competency that the school will deliver and assess in partnership with TAFE SA
  • Contact details for the parties to the agreement

A separate VISA Schedule Spreadsheet must be negotiated for each training area to be delivered and assessed in a school.

Negotiations of a VISA Schedule start with the school investigating their readiness for delivery and assessment.  TAFE SA has developed VISA Guides and a TAFE SA VISA Process to help guide schools through the establishment of a VISA Schedule.
