Celebrated on August 27th– September 2nd, National Skills Week is the focal point for the promotion of Australia’s Vocational Education and Training sector (VET). Each year the week continues to celebrate and inform students and the wider public of the diversity and career pathways available through VET.

Ron Maxwell, VERTO CEO commented on the event, explaining that, “The Meet the Tradies Open Day is a great way for senior students who are contemplating their post school journey to find out more about alternative career paths.”

The event will connect local school students with local tradespeople from various businesses such as Hynash, Kelso Electrical, Geoff Bennett Plumbing/roofing and Toulon Welding and Fabrication.


As a proud partner of the Accessible Bathurst project, VERTO are also excited to have the team from Everywhere Venues attend the Open Day. They will be able to explain how to search for venues in the local area to obtain accessibility information and ensure that when organising events and activities that your friends, family and colleagues with accessibility needs can safely attend.
