Students shape own curriculum in 'new generation' of vocational schools

The NSW government has launched "a new generation" of vocational high schools to help students find jobs in a post-coronavirus economy.

Skills and Tertiary Education Minister Geoff Lee said Seven Hills High School in Sydney's west would be among the first to provide students with dual HSC and vocational qualifications, and curriculums designed "to suit the students".

Premier Gladys Berejiklian on Monday said the school would provide qualifications in community and health services, construction, electro-technology, plumbing, transport and logistics to meet local industry needs within three years.
