Welcome to National Skills Week

National Skills Week is dedicated to raising the profile and status of  skills and vocational learning, dispelling outdated myths and showcasing the attractive career opportunities for all Australians.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) has been the foundation of Australia’s strong and vibrant economy. It has produced industry leaders, it offers great diversity, new and exciting career paths, supports our resources and primary industries, builds our cities, supports our tourism, our monuments, our heritage and much, much more.

In recognition of NAIDOC week, we would like to shine the spotlight on First Nation individuals who have achieved their career goals through vocational education.  Winner of the 2023 Western Australia Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year. #VET has supported Anthony to follow his studies, leading him to becoming a mechanical fitter, and diving into the industry of manufacturing.  "This opportunity has fostered significant growth, both professionally and personally, instilling confidence, pragmatism, and authenticity in my day-to-day life. But most importantly, it makes my kids proud!"  Anthony also won Runner-up for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year at the Australian Training Awards.

This week is NAIDOC week, and in recognition, we would like to share the success that First Nation individuals can achieve through vocational education.  Bradley Maynard is a proud Palawa man, and is the Winner of the 2023 Tasmanian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year.  Through #VET Bradley has been able to explore the industries of boiler making and welding, project management and #VET has now led him to his chapter lead role in the Defence Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Network, on top of more.  Starting off as an apprentice, Bradley now looks after a team of almost 300 people, as a Safety Manager.  Bradley was also the 2023 - Tasmanian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year - Winner.  VET can lead you to your dream career, and help support and guide you beyond that.
