Skills and Thrills new shows announced

Skills and Thrills Parents Showcase 2019

The NSW Department of Education working with SkillsOne will this year be offering a pilot program focused on educating parents about vocational education and training (VET).  It has been identified that there is a need to help parents better understand vocational pathways, the opportunities for their children and showcase where a VET pathway can lead.

Parents are a driving force in their child’s life and are often looked to for both guidance and career advice.  With a vast amount of information out there, 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 showcase, parents will learn about the following;

  • Apprenticeships and Traineeships
  • TAFE/ Private Training Providers
  • Funding options available (Smart and Skilled)
  • In school options (SBAT's)
  • 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)
