Welcome to National Skills Week

The Hon. Senator Michaelia Cash, Minister for Small business, Skills and Vocational Education

SkillsOne Television interviewed newly appointed Senator Michaelia Cash – in her first week as Minister for Small Business, Skills and Vocational Education, at the Federal launch of National Skills Week 2018

She says, “That is something I want to work closely with the sector on, in particular The Australian VET Alumni – you can’t be it, if you can’t see it. We have some fantastic Alumni out there that we need to showcase to Australians.”

August 27th – September 2nd, 2018

National Skills Week is the focal point for the promotion of Australia’s Vocational Education and Training sector (VET). Each year the week continues to celebrate and inform students and the wider public of the diversity and career pathways available through VET. The week communicates the emerging trends and new growth drivers connecting skills training with job outcomes.

Click for the first video, starring VET Alumni and Australian Apprenticeships Ambassadors talking passionately and honestly about their experiences. To find out more about the initiative visit www.myskills.gov.au.

National Skills Week 2018 will extend the message by adopting Real Skills for Real Careers as the theme for 2018.
