About the VETDSS Awards

The Mid West & Gascoyne Vocational Education and Training Delivered to Secondary Students Awards (VETDSS) recognises excellence in students undertaking Vocational Education and Training Programs in schools and is a significant strategy to enhance the profile of these programs in the Mid West and Gascoyne regions. It is also a time to recognise the partnerships between Central Regional TAFE and local businesses who continue to support Students in hosting valuable work placement opportunities.

The Vocational Education and Training Delivered to Secondary Students (VETDSS) Employer Awards recognise the support of business and industry with the VETDSS program and can be nominated by any member of School Staff, Parent/Guardian, Student or Central Regional TAFE employee involved in the program.

All student and employer nominations are celebrated at an Awards evening on the 25 October at our Geraldton Campus.

Why nominate?

For schools: the Awards are an excellent promotional tool and validation of how your innovative training programs have benefited your students.

For businesses: the Awards provide a benchmark of excellence that places your organisation at the forefront in an increasingly competitive market.

All Student Category Award Winners will receive a $100 gift voucher to use in their industry and a framed certificate recognising their achievement.  All Category Finalists will also be recognised at the Award event.

The highlight of the event will be the announcement of the overall 2018 Mid West and Gascoyne VETDSS Student of the Year Award presented to the most outstanding student from any of the nominated categories in year 11 or 12 who will win a 32GB iPad.
