National Skills Week runs from 24 to 30 August. To accommodate COVID-19 travel restrictions, the events are virtual.

National Skills Week focuses on raising the awareness and profile of vocational education and training (VET) and the wide range of opportunities it offers to those entering the workforce, switching careers or looking for work.

How can you get involved?

There are a range of registered and partnered events throughout the week, such as:

  • Year 13’s Future of Work Expo - a good place to start if you’re starting your career and want to know more about different industries.
  • The Department of Education, Skills and Employment pilot Skills Organisations in the mining, digital and human services care areas are hosting a live-streamed event on the Workforce of the Future, and the National Skills Commission is releasing information about emerging occupations and associated skills with each career.
  • The National Careers Institute (NCI) will be featuring in a keynote industry videoconference with Executive Director, Tiffany Blight. You will learn about the NCI’s work and what it offers to everyday Australians and the education and skills training sectors.
