Calling VET in Schools and young apprenticeships providers: 2012 Australian Vocational Student Prize awards now open

Monday, October 8 2012

Australia’s top young final-year secondary school VET students can be nominated for the 2012 Australian Vocational Student Prize (AVSP).

The awards showcase the importance of VET in preparing young students for lifelong career and educational success.

Up to 500 prizes will be awarded to outstanding Year 12 students studying a VET in Schools program or an Australian schools-based Apprenticeship as part of their final year.

The AVSP celebrates the achievements and endeavours of young students who have chosen to forge vocational, industry-specific career pathways through their senior secondary years.

The awards focus on students’ vocational achievements and personal attributes, including leadership roles in their school and community, determination and commitment.

Students can be nominated by their school principal, teacher, Vocational Education and Training Coordinator or equivalent.

Winners will receive a $2000 prize. The highest-achieving AVSP winners are also eligible for the Prime Minister’s Award for Skills Excellence in School, with an additional $2000 to be awarded to the winners.

More information on the AVSP and nomination details are available from the DEEWR website.

Nominations close Friday 7 December 2012.
