What we do
The VET Development Centre (VDC) was established in 2005 by the Victorian Government to promote the development and raise the professional standing of people working in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) Sector. VDC delivers and facilitates Victorian Government funded continuing professional learning and evaluation activities to the Victorian VET workforce.
The VDC specialises in providing fee for service continuing professional learning webinars, workshops, and seminars well as customised consultancy to the Australian VET sector.
The VDC is a public company limited by guarantee, with the Victorian Minister for Training and Skills as the sole member. The VDC is governed by an experienced Board of Directors appointed for their specialist expertise in VET, workforce development and corporate governance.
To be the centre of excellence for continuing professional learning to the VET workforce
We endeavour to demonstrate our values in all our interactions with clients, customers and stakeholders and monitor our impact through survey feedback, program participation rates and demand for our advisory services.
- Ethics and Integrity, Respect and Collaboration through our strongly collaborative approach and trusted relationships and we believe that our growth in the recent past reflects this;
- Passion and a Customer Focus through our relentless efforts to understand the specific needs of providers and to be a partner in their success;
- Life-long Learning and Quality by continuously seeking out best practice methodologies and engaging more and more in strategic collaborations with providers and agencies to build the knowledge-base that can then be shared across the sector.
