Now moving into its ninth year, National Skills Week will again set out to bring to life the positive messages, highlighting the talents, the skills, the career pathways and the value of apprentices and trainees across Australia to the wider public and employers.
The week is dedicated to raising the status of practical and vocational learning.
To raise the status of practical and vocational learning, enabling all Australians to gain a greater understanding of the opportunities, their potential, and how they can contribute to a successful, modern economy.
To articulate and advocate – “learning by doing is as important as academic learning”. To showcase examples of the many pathways to success and to dispel some of the out-dated myths often associated with vocational training.
