Applications are open. VET International Practitioner Fellowship.

The Victorian Skills Authority (VSA) in partnership with the International Specialised Skills Institute (ISS Institute) are offering 10 International VET Practitioner Fellowships in 2024.

The fellowship program offers vocational education and training (VET) practitioners an opportunity to increase their skills by travelling overseas and undertaking applied research to learn, report and share their knowledge in their area of expertise. Overseas fellowship research may include (but is not limited to) meeting knowledgeable leaders, conducting interviews, observation, immersion in workplaces, undertaking specialised training, or attending a specialist conference. 

Fellowships are an extraordinary opportunity to create change in your discipline or industry and leave your mark on it through the dissemination of your newfound knowledge and enhanced skills. Returning fellows become ambassadors of the VSA, the ISS Institute and their respective institutions.

The fellowship program aims to build capacity and capability in VET applied research. It also supports quality and excellence in the VET sector through the development of innovative approaches to teaching and learning.

Who can apply?

The fellowships are open to members of the Victorian VET sector who are employed within Victorian Government contracted registered training organisations (RTOs) including:

  • TAFEs
  • private RTOs
  • Learn Local providers (ACFE Board registered).

Fellowships are also available to VSA Industry Advisory Group members and their executive officers.

Supported by the VSA and the ISS Institute

Applicants for the fellowship program will focus in one of the following priority areas:

  1. Developing quality training with deep and meaningful connections to emerging or ongoing industry needs.
  2. Developing educational approaches that support inclusion and increase participation.
  3. Developing education and training that supports the skills needed for a clean economy.
