2020 VTAC briefings for careers practitioners

VTAC’s annual briefings for careers practitioners provide an overview of the VTAC application process, focusing on changes for this year and areas of complexity.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions on travel and mass gatherings, the annual VTAC briefings for careers practitioners will be held online this year.

We recognise that the VTAC briefings usually held in regional areas provide an important opportunity for careers practitioners to come together with colleagues from their local area and to ask questions specific to the needs of local students. As a result, we are maintaining a regional structure for the online briefings, however some locations with smaller numbers of attendees in previous years have been combined with nearby sessions for this year.

Melbourne metropolitan briefings will also be offered on multiple dates as in previous years to ensure careers practitioners are able to virtually attend a session.

Webinars for students and parents: in additional to these briefings for careers practitioners, we will be running a series of webinars for students and parents from late July as we approach the opening of VTAC applications. More information about these webinars for the general community will be posted to this blog shortly.

We thank the schools and tertiary institutions who had already offered to host VTAC sessions this year, and hope to see you in person next year.
