Students in Years 11 and 12 have the opportunity to personalise their learning pathway by incorporating nationally accredited certificate courses in vocational areas into their SACE. NMHS is a member of the Eastern Area Schools Cluster and together with a range of training organisations, provide courses that enable students to develop and practise business and industry-specific skills while at the same time meeting their SACE requirements.
Students have access to courses in a wide range of areas including:
- Art, Design, Fashion and Multimedia
- Auto, Construction, Electrical, Engineering and Plumbing
- Business Management, Fitness, Childcare and Health Assistance
- Hair, Beauty and Makeup
- Hospitality and Tourism
While all qualifications accrue different numbers of SACE credits depending on the level of the Certificate and its complexity, the completion of a Certificate III can be used not only for SACE completion but also in the calculation of an ATAR score for university entry.
