National Skills Week 2016 – THAT’S A WRAP!
National Skills Week has wrapped for its sixth consecutive year with unprecedented success! The week was launched nationally on Wednesday 24th August, at the Queen Victoria Night Markets in Melbourne by the Hon Karen Andrews MP, Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills.
Widespread state and territory launches followed throughout the week in a drive to change existing attitudes toward Vocational Education and Training and showcase VET as a first choice career pathway.
Hundreds of events also took place across Australia including Open Days, Competitions, Info Days and Hospitality/Commercial Cookery events, not to mention numerous events run by schools and not for profit organisations, such as Rotary.
