Many students, parents & carers are surprised by the breadth of careers that VET includes. It's important that everyone understands the real advantages VET provides, so that young people, and those who advise them, can make smart choices about the future.

Welcome to the Australian Parents Council

The Australian Parents Council is a representative body that bridges the gap between parents and government policymakers. We are on a mission to help all children thrive in non-government schools but we can't do it alone. We need both sound government policy and empowered parents to ensure academic, social and emotional success in all students.
