National Medalists to Promote Vocational Education and Training as Australian Apprenticeships Ambassadors
Established by the Department of Education and Training in 2011, the Australian Apprenticeships Ambassadors Program aims to raise the status of the Australian apprenticeships system by showcasing real success stories. The Ambassadors speak to school leavers, career changers, educators and industry at a range of events about the personal and professional benefits of pursuing an apprenticeship.
“With so many of the gold medalists representing skills that have been identified by the Australian Government as experiencing skills shortages, it is fantastic to see these young men and women promoting vocational education as a viable career pathway through this important program” said WorldSkills Australia CEO Brett Judd.
