2021 VET in Schools Forum
Join us for the fourth instalment of VET in Schools Forum on 25 June 2021 live at the Southern Cross Catholic Vocational College and virtually via our online events and networking platform. Following an unprecedented year of challenges and disruption in 2020, an open dialogue amongst the education sector’s stakeholders has never been more requisite as we connect Australia’s most eminent VET educators to improve student pathways and outcomes.
The Forum will focus on the topic
Pathways for the Future.
There are more than ¼ million students engaging in VET in Schools nationally (more than 54,000 in NSW) each year. Students are being prepared for work at school as they work towards training package qualifications in a broad range of vocational areas.
