    The challenge

    The perception that the VET sector was a less favourable pathway to take when gaining qualifications in comparison to university proved as a challenge for CRE8IVE to solve.

    The strategy

    By using real people’s personas, their stories and personalities, the idea that 'there are many ways to succeed' helped to drive change and communicate an impactful message.

    The change

    The campaign set to change the narrative of gaining tertiary qualifications. The integration of inspiring narratives clearly highlighted VET as an alternative to university, not a second choice.

    The impact

    The new visual identity of VET uses the power of real people to change perceptions. The campaign’s focus on inspiring personal narrative stepped them out of their current category and become as equally considered as universities.
