With over 3 million students currently at private training providers, Vocational Education and Training (VET) remains an important pathway into work and further study for a diverse set of learners, from school leavers to those returning to education as experienced adults. In recent years, however, the industry has also been criticised in high profile media stories, with reports raising questions about how courses are sold and funded.

This informal session goes beyond the media hype to share insights from a number of perspectives across VET, from regulatory issues to curriculum design. Our presenters will reflect on themes and learnings from key conferences they have attended and contributed to this year, including NCVER (National Centre for Vocational Education Research) and ACPET (Australian Council for Private Education and Training).

Join us to hear more about what’s happening in the VET sector, and in particular where some of the important solutions to the sector’s key challenges may lie. There will be a chance to add your own comments and questions during the session.
