Vocational Excellence Award

New award for top vocational student at each school

Principals and leaders of secondary schools and wharekura can now apply to award the top vocational student of their school with a certificate of excellence and a $2000 cash prize.

The newly announced Prime Minister’s Vocational Excellence Award aims to encourage more young people into vocational education and training, and to celebrate the achievement of secondary students enrolled in vocational programmes of learning.


Make your application in time to include this new award in your end-of-year prize-giving ceremonies for 2019.

The Ministry of Education will consider applications from schools during September.
