National Skills Week – delivering pathways to careers

This week is National Skills Week. It is designed to break down barriers to VET courses – people tend to think that these courses and apprenticeships are really limited, but VET can provide entrance into most industries and careers, from trades, architecture, engineering and office work, to retail, hospitality and technology.

VET is designed to provide you with the specific skills, knowledge and workplace experience to help you pursue a career within a defined industry. If you have a specific career in mind, you’d like to start earning straight away, or maybe you just don’t fancy going to university, then you might want to consider a VET course or an apprenticeship.
   
“The fact is that VET qualifications lead to successful, meaningful, professional careers with great salaries and outstanding careers prospects.”
The Hon. Karen Andrews – Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills
