Skills Gateway Launched
A new website has been launched that helps vocational students find the right training. The Victorian Skills Gateway makes it easier to find training that fits, with information about jobs and courses tailored to the needs of different users, including students, adult learners, careers practitioners, employers and parents.
The site features information about different jobs and industries to help users decide what career will most suit them and what training they need to achieve it. There is specific information on areas where there are skills shortages and on specialist occupations. The site focuses on Victorian-specific labour market information, including job prospects, average salaries and regions where specific occupations are typically found.
The Victorian Skills Gateway is easy to use, allowing users to start searching for an occupation, course or a training provider with just a keyword. It is smartphone friendly, and no app downloads are required.
The Victorian Skills Gateway is located at www.education.vic.gov.au/victorianskillsgateway
