Winner
Western Australia

As an RTO school since 1999, Busselton Senior High School has a unique model. A key feature is the highly supported student participation in work placement one day a week.

The model provides a platform for exceptional industry links, RTO compliance, and offers flexibility with an off-grid timetable to assist staff to develop highly innovative programs.

The school is highly regarded for its expertise in supporting schools across the state to meet compliance and deliver high quality programs to students with employment for further training outcomes.

VET offerings have increased in recent years to reflect the needs of industry and provide engaging programs. In 2018, 75 per cent of senior school students were enrolled in a VET qualification. A flexible timetable model with strong industry links is central to the success of the programs, as is delivery by suitably qualified and dedicated staff.

In 2017 the school achieved a 100 per cent attainment rate. This is indicative of the high levels of support provided to students and the engaging nature of the programs.
