This qualification is delivered as a VET program in Secondary Schools through approved VET Lab for Schools partners. A VET program in Secondary Schools is considered part time delivery as students are undertaking other subjects and/or study. VET Lab for Schools has designed the SIS30115 Certificate III in Sport and Recreation to be delivered over 2 years. Our program structure has divided the units of competency into six learning modules. Three are delivered in Year 1, three are delivered in Year 2. 

Alternatively, participants who have pre-existing skills and knowledge may be able to complete the course in a shorter duration. VET Lab for Schools offers recognition of prior learning and recognises the outcomes issued by other Registered Training Organisations. VET Lab for Schools enrolment process will ask students if they have any prior learning or hold current competencies.

For successful completion of SIS30115 Certificate III in Sport and Recreation, 15 units must be completed. This includes 9 core units and 6 elective units.

The program has been designed to meet State and Territory requirements for credit arrangements in the student’s senior school certificate. This includes Scored Assessment requirements in Victoria.

The course id delivered through six modules. Three are delivered in Year one, consisting of 10 units of competency and three modules are delivered in Year 2 consisting on 5 units of competency.

Units have been selected and structured to meet the Victoria Curriculum Assessment Authority requirements for Scored Assessment. 

VET Lab for Schools has designed and developed learning and assessment materials specifically appropriate for VET delivered in Secondary Schools delivery by engaging with a range of industry professionals.

Training and Assessment is delivered face to face via classroom-based delivery. There will also be some self-paced learning required. All learning and Assessment Materials can be accessed via the VET Lab for Schools Learning Management System. Students are given time during class to prepare assessment responses, however, there may also be times where students will need to prepare or finish their assessments in their own time.

The Training and Assessment has been sequenced in logical progression. Units of competency have been clustered to deliver a holistic and realistic education program. VET Lab for Schools provide students with all training and assessment materials and ensure access to equipment or resources needed for assessment. VET Lab for Schools are also responsible for facilitating any community partnerships required for assessment or program experience enhancement.


VET Lab for Schools expects Schools to have suitable sporting facilities to conduct a range of sporting sessions. These include but not limited to open space, ovals, basketball/netball courts or multi-purpose courts. The school must undertake a pre-contract check to confirm that they have access to a range of sporting equipment for students to use for the training and assessment of their sporting sessions. If schools do not have these resources, VET Lab for Schools can assist the School in arranging access.

Schools will be required to enter into a contract with VET Lab for Schools that specifies the responsibilities and expectations of each party and supply VET Lab for Schools with a range of supporting documentation. Including but not limited to;

  • Teacher qualifications (TAE40116 or equivalent)  
  • School timetables to confirm VET timetable
  • Photos of Sport equipment and facilities (this can be completed by VET Lab during their visit)


VET Lab for Schools expects students to have suitable language, literacy and numeracy skills to read and comprehend learning and assessment materials, access and interpret documents such as sporting codes of conduct, relevant industry reports and government education material on legislation, plan, conduct, evaluate and report on sporting activities and events, including surveying participants and identifying and reporting hazards.

  • Enrolment Form
  • Obtain a USI Number
