Educational Pathways

A new look to launch new careers

VET provides training for 9 out of 10 occupations with the greatest new job growth over the next 5 years.1

The future of work is VET

Vocational Education and Training (VET) graduates secure full-time employment at a rate of 78%, outpacing their university counterparts at 69%.

The Educational Pathways Program represents the NSW Department of Education’s proactive response to evolving employment demands. Consisting of 8 dynamic initiatives, this program accelerates students toward promising career trajectories while dispelling entrenched misconceptions about VET.

Our studio played a pivotal role in shaping the aesthetic identity of this groundbreaking program, commencing with the branding of the inaugural Look Forward conference in 2022. Our illustrative approach garnered widespread acclaim, resonating with both attendees and industry leaders, and has been evolved to become the hallmark visual identity of the Program.
