2015 dates for VTAC Briefings and Information Sessions

VTAC runs briefings for careers practitioners and information sessions for students, parents, and the wider community. The dates for these sessions in 2015 are listed below.

Careers Practitioners’ Briefings are annual briefing sessions for careers practitioners, covering all aspects of the VTAC application process, including course applications, change of preference, SEAS, scholarships, the ATAR and scaling. To book one of these sessions, go to the registration page for that event.

  • There is an extended metropolitan briefing for new careers practitioners on Monday 27 July. This session is reserved for careers practitioners new to the VTAC process.
  • Careers practitioners not based at a secondary school (e.g. those based at universities, TAFEs, or Independent Tertiary Colleges) are encouraged to attend the metropolitan briefing on Thursday 30 July, as this session will have more of an emphasis on the non-Year 12 cohort.

Community Information Sessions are regional information nights for all applicants, including Year 12 students, parents, and members of the community considering a return to study. In some areas, local tertiary institutions have been invited to attend these information sessions.

Parents and Students Information Sessions are school-based information nights for current Year 12 students and their parents.
