National Skills Week

Now in its fourth year, National Skills Week provides a platform to highlight the opportunities and career pathways available through Vocational Education and Training. The theme this year is The Magical Mystery Tour of Skills.

National Skills Week will be held between the 25th to the 31st of August, where 500 events will be held across Australia to mark a national celebration of the VET sector.

National Skills Week is dedicated to raising the profile of vocational learning, dispelling out dated myths about the sector and showcasing career opportunities for the young and old.

The primary focus of National Skills Week is to promote the diversity, possibilities and options for career outcomes, and to recognise the teachers, students, business and training providers who make it happen. Many of the events will be attended by local and state MPs, as well as students, industry representatives, parents, training professionals and members of the public.
