Skills and Thrills new shows announced



Over the past 11 years working with schools SkillsOne has identified a strong need to help parents better understand vocational pathways and the opportunities a vocational education and training (VET) qualification can provide.

Following on from a very successful pilot round of showcases in 2019 SkillsOne Television working with the NSW Government will once again present the Skills and Thrills Careers Showcase Parents Edition.  This presentation is focused on educating parents about vocational education and training, highlighting industry trends and promoting VET as a first-choice pathway.

Parents are a driving force in their child’s life and are often looked to for both guidance and career advice.  The Skills and Thrills Careers Showcases are designed to provide parents with the knowledge and understanding they need to assist their children to make informed choices.

Through the Showcases parents will learn about the following;

  • Apprenticeships and Traineeships
  • TAFE/ Private Training Providers
  • Funding options available (Smart and Skilled)
  • Vocational Education and Training (VET) Options, School- delivered Vet, SBATs and EVET
  • Where to find information
  • Who can assist/ resources available
  • Opportunity to speak with parents and students who have chosen/ who’s child has chosen a VET pathway (Q&A)
