All Notre Dame's VET programs have been developed in collaboration with community, industry and student groups to ensure their quality and that they meet the needs of the workplace. Our VET programs are offered both 'on-campus' and 'off-campus', which allows greater flexibility and access by students from communities in the Kimberley and across Western Australia. Vocational education programs can also provide students with pathways into Higher Education degree program.

Tertiary Pathway Program

Notre Dame’s Tertiary Pathway Program (TPP) is designed for students living in rural Western Australia who do not meet the minimum entry requirements for University admissions. The TPP will assist students to develop new methods of learning and strategies for success, as well as the skills and confidence to study at a university level. This course provides an alternative pathway into undergraduate programs at Notre Dame. Using the Regional and Remote Delivery Model (RRDM), the units are delivered either externally online and/or in separate week-long blocks on the Broome and/or Fremantle Campuses.
