The Awards Dinner is a tremendous celebration of the richness of Vocational Education and Training, of outstanding skills and talent, of the brightest and best-individuals and organisations demonstrating excellence in work, in training, in doing ordinary things in an extraordinary way.

SCCVC Principal, Patrick O’Reilly, is effusive in his praise: ‘Having been a finalist for this Award in 2011, and Winner of the Award in 2013, winning again speaks eloquently about the further development and improvement we have realised in the past 2 years. Being only in our 6th year of operation, the Award is a testament to the hundreds of Business and Industry partners, staff, students and families, the Catholic Education Office staff and our Advisory Board-past and present-to their belief in and commitment to the best and most authentic pathways we can enable for our young men and women….the next skillful generation of adults.
