Ladies Do Lunch

Lauren Yates is a winner of the Australian Vocational Student prize for outstanding vocational achievement in secondary education - she explains the advantages of a TVET course in high school as she prepares gnocci sauce in the learning kitchens of Pymble Ladies College.

Pymble Ladies' College was founded in 1916. The College caters for girls from five to eighteen years of age (from Kindergarten to Year 12) and offers TAFE accredited vocational options for high school students in Hospitality Operations.

The Australian Vocational Student Prize (AVSP) recognises Year 12 students who demonstrate exceptional skill, commitment and achievement while undertaking an Australian School-based Apprenticeship or a Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Schools programme. Students are nominated for the prize by their school principal.

TAFE Delivered Vocational Education and Training (TVET) courses offer senior secondary school students the opportunity to study for TAFE NSW qualifications as part of their regular Higher School Certificate study program. These courses are a great way to build your career in a range of industries.
