Chevalier College is extremely proud to announce some wonderful news from the 2019 Vocational Education and Training awards held on Thursday 7 November at the Mittagong RSL Club.
The Southern Highlands Schools Excellence in Vocational Education and Training Awards are designed to recognise, reward and promote the pursuit of excellence by students completing VET subjects as part of their HSC study. The awards play a significant role in encouraging young people to strive to achieve their personal best in their chosen VET pathway and to celebrate excellence in skills development.
Chevalier College offers four VET frameworks with a fifth, Business Services, being introduced in 2020. Chevalier College had a student from each of these frameworks achieve the VET student of the year award for their particular industry category.
Additionally, the overall 2019 VET Student of the Year award also went to a Chev student, Darcy Howard (Class of 2019).
The students, their dedicated teachers and the leaders of the VET faculty are to be congratulated and thanked for their great labour of love.

2019 VET Student of the Year – Darcy Howard
A wonderful night for Chev students and Chev staff!
Chevalier College continues to strive to offer the widest possible curriculum to its students. More and more students who are following an academic path are seeing the advantages of including a VET course in their studies for the HSC. Preparing young people for the post-school world requires more than an ATAR.
Resilience, negotiation skills, people skills and a service orientated work ethic, combined with the academics, creates a highly flexible and valued future contributor to the world. This was highlighted at the awards night when the achievements of all the nominated students were read out.
Chevalier College would like to express its appreciation and thanks to the many local businesses who support these courses by providing work placement and mentoring to these young people.
The college also wishes to offer our congratulations to the VET students and staff from Bowral High School and Moss Vale High School who were honoured at the awards ceremony.
