Why are we here? The AOF exists because we strongly believe that supporting the personal development of outstanding young people will help our country to thrive. Australian industry can see the long term benefits of young people working overseas, honing their skills and obtaining state-of-the-art trade experience to keep Australia at the forefront of technical innovation and know-how.
The AOF’s goal is to identify outstanding young vocationally-trained Australians, and through its awards, help develop their leadership skills, and increase their knowledge and experience that is subsequently reinvested in Australian industry on their return.
