This Fellowship is open to:

  • VET practitioners who are employed within a national Registered Training Organisation (RTO), including TAFEs and private RTOs.

  • Academic researchers with sustainability expertise whose applied research will have an impact on the VET sector.

  • Applicants welcome from all Australian states and territories provided they have an Australian Citizenship or Permanent Residency.


The VDC Australian VET Sustainability Fellowship for VET Practitioners 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 etc,  then disseminate the findings to the Australian VET sector upon return.
