This week marks Australia’s fourth year celebrating National Skills Week, and in true Rose Training Australia fashion we are joining in with enthusiasm. Running from the 25th until the 31st of August, National Skills Week publicly acknowledges the Australians undertaking vocational education to further their careers.
This week at Rose Training we have a Project Management course running with a select few learning the skills of the trade and the ability to manage a few to make greatness happen. Like the old adage says; many hands make light work.
Like the many who have stepped through Rose Training’s doors before, we welcome the recognition of those undertaking vocational education to become the best they further their education. This leads to many paths such as opening up new career paths, more independence in the work place and respect for their intellect among their colleagues.
There are many alongside celebrating National Skills Week with us, such as The Career Industry Council of Australia, TAFE nationwide, the NRL, Rotary clubs across Australia, the Defence Force, World Skills Australia and the Australia Apprenticeships Centre. This year’s featured sponsor is News Limited.
The feature ambassador this year is Ian Goudie, last year’s runner up for Vocational Student of the Year for his work turning his life around to enrol at Canberra’s Institute of Technology for vocational education. Today, his efforts are broadly recognised across Australia for his volunteer work in the Canberra lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community, winning the acclaimed ACT Government’s 2013 Volunteer of the Year award. He is among fourteen guest ambassadors and speakers who will be presenting at this year’s National Skills Week conference.
‘I think that vocational education is the best way for someone to discover their own path, their career and their legacy,’ says CEO of Rose Training Australia, Gary Rose. ‘I am in full support of National Skills Week and can’t wait to get started on our new courses in light of this great week.’
