The VET Development Centre (VDC) is delighted to announce the launch of the VDC Sustainability Fellowship for VET Practitioners.

Working in partnership with the International Specialised Skills Institute (ISS Institute), VDC is funding the VDC International Sustainability Fellowship [travel] and the VDC International Sustainability Fellowship [desktop]. The Fellowship program focuses on developing opportunities within the VET sector to support sustainable practices and innovation to generate long term social and environmental benefits.

The travel fellowship involves travelling abroad to research new skills and best practice in areas such as clean and alternative energy, upcycling, recycling, innovative technologies and sustainable processes and procedures, then disseminate the findings to the Australian VET sector upon return.

The desktop fellowship provides the opportunity for VET Practitioners to learn international best practice without travel. The ideal candidate has a strong research agenda that can be conducted online and/or within Australia.

Applications are open to VET practitioners who are employed within a national Registered Training Organisation, including TAFEs and private RTOs and are Australian Permanent Residents or citizens over the age of 18, living in any state or territory in Australia.

Applications close 31 March 2023. Follow the travel or desktop links or visit for further information.
