A Universe of Skills: Go beyond your imagination.

National Skills Week recognises and celebrates the diversity, benefits and achievements associated with vocational education and training (VET) pathways. Join us in celebrating the career opportunities and success stories of VET in Australia.

This National Skills Week, you are invited to go beyond your imagination and discover careers, pathways and opportunities in skills and VET that you may not know about. 

By attending one of the many events held around the country, in-person or online, you can learn about new career opportunities and industry specific initiatives. Whether you are just starting your career, looking for a change, or perhaps you are a parent or employer, National Skills Week has something for you.


Planning for National Skills Week 2022 is underway. Please check back soon.
