Victorian Challenge & Enrichment
Our VCES program offers a series of future-focused modules for government schools across the state.
What are Victorian Challenge and Enrichment
Victorian Challenge and Enrichment Series (VCES) are live-online workshops or webinars that support students in exploring STEM careers. They will enrich students’ understanding of how their current or future studies related to future jobs and local industries.
Each stand-alone session is designed to be fun, enriching, and utterly engaging.
We encourage teachers and students to identify modules that they would like to experience.
Superjobs enable Primary Students to explore future-focused skills that are connected to different jobs of the future. Each session will inspire students to engage with STEM-rich topics and enquire about subject and career pathways before entering secondary school. Many of the activities are designed for students to continue engagement beyond the online workshop.
Co-designed with industry and featuring inspiring scientists or researchers our VCE webinars help high-ability students to understand how their interest and aptitude for STEM subjects translates to course selection and the world of work.
