BSSC’s has once again been recognised at the highest level by being selected as a finalist in the 2016 Victorian Training Awards. Congratulations to RTO and VET Manager Jenny Moloney and the staff at BSSC for delivering an outstanding VET in Schools program.

The awards recognise the achievements of students, trainees and apprentices and the teachers, schools and businesses who provide their training.

Our college was lauded for the impressive range of VET courses and programmes that link learning, training and employment, such as the highly regarded work placement programme that allows students to participate in structured workplace learning with local businesses and undertake school-based apprenticeships.

This is the fourth time in six years that BSSC has been a finalist in State or National VET awards reflecting a consistently high level of service delivery and ongoing program innovation.

The 2016 Victorian Training Awards have 15 categories ranging from school-based apprentices to Vocational Education and Training teacher/trainer of the year. The diversity of school-based training is celebrated in the VET in Schools Excellence Award and the School-based Apprentice of the Year.

 “Training is the key to a skilled and adaptable workforce. I congratulate the students, employers and educators who are finalists in the 2016 Victorian Training Awards.” said Minister for Training and Skills Steve Herbert.

The awards will be presented on Friday 26 August. All individual category winners will become finalists in the Australian Training Awards.
