MacKillop Catholic College offers a range of pathway options for students to gain skills, experience and qualifications in various vocational education and training (VET) areas. Our offerings in this area continue to grow each year, so if you are interested in finding out more, please contact us.

We offer flexible learning pathways through Apprenticeships, Traineeships and Distance Education courses.  These pathways provide students the options to undertake additional Stage 1 or Stage 2 subjects through other secondary education providers and also the opportunity to undertake accredited training through external or internally delivered vocational and education training (VET) courses.

MacKillop Catholic College also offers a range of VET courses on campus.  The College is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and offers a number of courses to current students.  The list of courses offered is growing each year. You can submit expressions of interest for courses here.


Senior secondary students (Years 10-12) study towards the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET).  The NTCET is based on and administered by the South Australian Certification of Education.  Students in Year 10 – 12 can start to accumulate credits towards their NTCET at MacKillop Catholic College by choosing either VET courses or Stage 1 and Stage 2 courses in their Subject Selection. You can learn more about VET in the NTCET here.
