What is the problem you found?
How might we educate VCE students about VCAL?
Customer / Problem
School students may not understand the benefits of VCAL, and thus make uninformed decisions to pursue VCE.
There is a disparity of education and resources to promote VCAL and VCE, leading to stigma and misunderstanding around VCAL. VCAL is important to produce STEM focussed graduates with practical skills. A lack of information around VCAL not only leads to a shortage of VCAL students, it contributes to a shortage of tradies and skilled STEM workers in society.
What Is Your Solution?
A trial day where VCE students can try out VCAL to see if they like it.
This day could include practical immersion workshops, discussions from teachers and industry representatives, and Q and A sessions for students.
Advise from current teachers. Maybe some advice from some fellow VCAL students. How to engage the VCE students to attend the VCAL trial.
