Stretch Your Mind with NVC PD

Stretch Your Mind with NVC PD image

Professional Development is any activity designed to stretch the current mindset and add to the skills and competencies used as an effective educator. The Velg Training National VET Conference consistently provides a spectacular opportunity for professional development in all things Vocational Education and Training (VET). VET is an industry comprised of many various elements and accordingly, we engage presenters who can, cumulatively, speak to them. This week we showcase the following speakers booked to provide mind stretching PD at the Sydney-based 2017 NVC.
