VET in Schools Excellence Awards
The annual VET in Schools Excellence Awards will be held on Tuesday 13 November to celebrate the outstanding achievements of Vocational Education & Training (VET) students within our regional schools.
Students are nominated for the Awards by their VET teachers and trainers. Completion of a work placement in the relevant industry is a pre-requisite to be a finalist with host employers providing reports on individual student performance. Nominated students submit their resume and finalists are interviewed by a panel of judges. The process is a good preparation for entering the workforce with the finalists being interviewed by a panel of judges.
This year we again welcome Brendon Hawken, Belinda Egan and Michael Pratt as our Award judges.
Students and their families, trainers, teachers, host employers and sponsoring businesses are invited to attend the gala night at the Moama Bowling Club. Music students from Echuca College and St Joseph’s College will give performances for the audience.
Our Guest speakers will be Louis Spencley, Winner of the in the Music category in 2012 who will talk of the foundation that studying VET music gave him for his career.
