Championing Victorian Industry within Schools

VET Champions

Championing Victorian Industry within Schools is an event that will recognise, celebrate and applaud the outstanding businesses and employers who have established or maintained relationships with schools and students, especially during 2020.

The event shines a light on employers providing valuable workplace learning support for students through programs such as Head Start, school-based apprenticeships and traineeships, Structured Workplace Learning and work experience opportunities.

It will profile these businesses and their achievements in supporting students, as well as being an opportunity to give our thanks and showcase future opportunities within Victorian secondary schools

Nominations have now closed for the Championing Victorian Industry event to be held on 25 March 2021.

“The support of local businesses in providing hands-on experience and training for Victorian students has never been more important and we thank and celebrate those employers that support school programs.”
– James Merlino, Minister for Education
