Top 10 Reasons You Should Attend the 2017 National VET Conference

Top 10 Reasons You Should Attend the 2017 National VET Conference image

The 2017 National VET Conference is set to be nothing short of the biggest and best conference dedicated to VET ever! The content rich program will be held at the brand new International Convention Centre in Sydney on 14-15 September 2017, with Master Classes being held on 13 September 2017.

Once again, we are offering a wide range of streams to choose from, including: RTO Management & Compliance; Training and Assessing; VET Shaper; Foundation Skills; eLearning; and Regulator, and will have an entire stream dedicated to the Department of Education and Training.

The NVC is a great opportunity for attendees from all over Australia to come together to learn, share, and of course have fun! Here are the top 10 reasons you should register to attend the VET event of the year:

1. 60+ sessions over 3 days!!

  • With 56 elective sessions across 8 streams to choose from, you get to build over 6 hours of professional development that suits you!
  • Master Classes on the 13th are great way to further extend your knowledge and professional development. These in-depth, hands-on sessions (of 3 hours), allow for more comprehensive engagement with both the content and the ‘masters’ of the industry.
  • Plenary sessions will ensure you are both educated and inspired! Hear from ASQA, the sector’s Minister and as always, a new motivational speaker on day 1 – who we know you will love and remember for ever!

2. Session Resources

Do you see multiple sessions you’d like to attend that are scheduled at the same time? Not to worry! After the 2017 NVC, you’ll have access to the resources from every session. Use these to increase your VET knowledge at your own pace, or revisit those sessions you attended.

3. Engage with VET Industry experts

Each year, we are proud to bring you some of the most highly regarded presenters in the VET industry. Attend the NVC to engage with a wide range of industry experts, and you can be confident that you are receiving the highest quality, most up-to-date information. Our experts design session content and resources that can be taken back and applied in your workplace.

4. Have all of your VET questions answered

At the NVC, we offer access to the Gurubar! Our Gurus are VET industry experts from a range of disciplines and they are stationed at the Gurubar all day Thursday and Friday, to answer any VET questions you might have.

5. Customise your program

Access our NVC app designed by our friends from Flip Creative. Once again this year, with so many sessions to choose from, the app makes it easy to create, and keep track of, your personalised program. Use the app to link up with other attendees!

6. Network with other delegates

One of the best things about the annual NVC is the opportunity it provides to connect with others in the VET sector from all around Australia. You can use our app, or simply meet during session or break times, or at the Welcome Function, to mingle with like-minded professionals from your industry. With over 1000 attendees expected, there are plenty of connections to be made!

7. Attend the biggest VET party in Australia

The Welcome Function is an exciting event that we look forward to each year. After a busy first day of attending sessions, you’ll get the opportunity to really wind down and enjoy a night of meeting new people, catching up with familiar faces, drinks and dancing. It’s the VET sector’s biggest party!

8. You get to see the Velgy Bunch and collect our famous Velg Training bags

The Velgy Bunch are so excited to catch up with all of you, and we hope that you are excited to see us too! Come and say hello to your favourite members from the team, and meet our wonderful new staff. We can’t wait to give you our signature, big and bright satchel bag on arrival. Add to your collection or start collecting now! These bags make the perfect accessory during the event and become your multipurpose memento once you get home.

9. Take some time out to Rest and Relax!

Come and visit our R ‘n’ R bar at any time during the 2017 NVC to do just that! Each delegate will receive one free massage – but make sure to book in quick so you don’t miss out. The NVC is a busy couple of days, and we want to provide you the opportunity to take a break.

10. It’s in Sydney

The 2017 NVC is being held in Sydney! Sydney is one of the world’s most loved cities and is famous for its lively and vibrant buzz. Located in Darling Harbour, the ICC Sydney is the perfect place to discover a little of what Sydney has to offer. Sydney is the perfect place to take a break! Why not stay for the weekend? Make sure you check out your satchel inserts to take advantage of some great offers.
