The VET Champions initiative showcases high-achieving Victorians who have risen to success through a vocational education and training (VET) pathway. VET Champions inspire secondary school students to broaden their understanding of VET pathways and the opportunities they provide.
The inaugural VET Champions initiative helps to demystify VET opportunities for secondary school students, teachers and parents, and demonstrate the breadth of careers that are available through hands-on, practical training including VET qualifications, traineeships and apprenticeships.
The initiative celebrates the success of our VET Champions as well as inspires young Victorians in every corner of the state.
VET Champions come from a diverse range of backgrounds, and a broad range of exciting and emerging industries in Victoria.
VET Champions will attend local school and industry events throughout 2021 to talk about their experiences.
A small group of VET Champions will be asked to speak at high-profile statewide events and all VET Champions will have a digital case study published on the Department's website which highlights their career path.
