gimbal-main-logoWhat is it? From Minister Karen Andrews…

“So tonight, I am delighted to launch a new, high profile initiative to raise the status of VET.

It’s called real skills for real careers…. a long-term, sustained program of activity to unify and promote the sector.

Real skills for real careers captures what VET is all about, and what it has to offer.  It reflects that VET is industry led, and is in line with our mission to deliver courses that offer students outstanding employment prospects through the guidance of leading-practice industry specialists.

Real skills for real careers will unite us in how we describe and promote what a VET qualification can deliver.”

“For too long, perceptions surrounding VET have been out of step with reality,” Minister Andrews said. “Many parents are still inclined to encourage their children to go to university after leaving school, rather than consider a VET career pathway. Others are convinced that VET is only for traditional trades like plumbing and carpentry. We need to dispel those myths.

“The fact is that VET qualifications lead to successful, meaningful, professional careers with great salaries and outstanding career prospects.”
