Information for Students
Welcome to the Australian Institute of Education and Training (AIET). Since 2003, AIET has successfully trained over 20,000 students across a wide range of Vocational VET in Schools Qualifications and training programs.
AIET prides itself in offering tailored Auspicing Services to Australian Secondary Schools. This is where Secondary Schools deliver a VET Accredited Training Program to Students in conjunction with an external Registered Training Organisation (RTO), in this case is AIET via a Third-Party arrangement. This means as a Student, you will be completing a qualification through VET in Schools program where your Secondary School Teacher is your Trainer, and your classes are undertaken in your Secondary School premises and classroom via face to face learning. Some qualifications may also contain Structured workplace Learning, or learning using Simulated Workplaces. AIET is the RTO who will process your enrolment into the Qualification or training program and will be issuing your Qualification or Statement of Attainment on completion.
Vocational Education and Training (VET) enables students to acquire workplace skills through nationally recognised training described within an industry-developed training package or an accredited course. A VET qualification is issued by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). The achievement of a VET qualification signifies that a student has demonstrated competency against the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively in the workplace. VET delivered to secondary students is the same as all other VET, and the same quality standards apply. Most VET in School qualifications have a duration of 2 years.
Under the quality standards used by Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) and the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA), only RTOs may issue VET qualifications or Statements of Attainment. In order to comply with these arrangements, a Secondary School offering a VCE VET program can form a partnership with an RTO, or register as an RTO in its own right. Cooperative arrangements may be established between schools and RTOs for the delivery and assessment of components of a training program. A Secondary School that is not registered as an RTO but intends to deliver training must do so under the Auspices of an RTO.
AIET manages Secondary Schools compliance requirements as per the ASQA Standards for RTOs 2015 and provides training resources to the Students and the Trainers. AIET is also responsible for the quality of your training and assessment and for issuing your Qualifications or Statement of Attainment. If any changes to the arrangements are made that affect your training program or services we provide, AIET will communicate this to all Students, this includes any change in ownership or new third party arrangements.
AIET does not guarantee that a Student will successfully complete a training program and does not guarantee that the successful completion of that training program will lead to an employment outcome.
AIET training programs are designed to support Students’ learning by using a range of flexible assessment strategies and frameworks, self-assessment and online testing tools, all designed to provide a learning environment that suits Students needs and providing access to essential Industry skills and Knowledge.
As a Student, you have access to AIET’s Refund Policy and Complaints and Appeals Policy and Procedures. These can be found on the links below.

If AIET or your Secondary School closes or ceases to deliver any part of the training product that you are enrolled in before you finish, AIET will endeavour to find an alternative VET Provider for you. You are covered by Consumer Law. Further information about your rights under the Consumer Law can be found at: http://consumerlaw.gov.au/the-australian-consumer-law/.
Your Secondary School may request a refund for any fees paid on your behalf if the contract with your Secondary School is terminated early, or AIET does not provide the agreed services. AIET gives a guarantee, that with the exception of unforeseen circumstances beyond their control, every effort will be made to deliver training and assessment services and meet desired qualification outcomes as agreed.
Where cancellation has occurred prior to the commencement of a course due to organisational or external constraints that are no fault of the student, all monies paid by the Secondary School on behalf of the Student will be fully refunded.
AIET does not offer government training entitlements and subsidy arrangements in relation to the delivery of the services
On completion of your training program, completion Certificates will not be issued unless full payment for the training has been finalised, or if you have not provided AIET with a USI.
