2017 RTO Administrators Mentoring Program


In 2017, Velg Training will again run the largest VET Mentoring Program in Australia. Velg Training is uniquely placed to provide such a program to educate, inspire and empower the VET community.

Ongoing professional development is vital to maintain an individual's skill, knowledge and expertise relevant to the VET sector. These Mentoring Programs will allow knowledge to be communicated and built upon over the 2017 calendar year to enhance your organisation's continuous improvement processes whilst maintaining your individual currency requirements.

All sessions in the Mentoring Program will include a pre-recorded webinar and a live webinar. The purpose of structuring the program this way is to ensure that participants get the most out of the program. Having pre-recorded content for participants will allow you to watch the content in your own time over a week. We know that many people in a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) are time poor and we believe that having flexibility is important to you. Additionally a live Q&A session will utilise our expert presenters and will give the opportunity for participants to come prepared to the webinar. Velg Training has run a comprehensive and successful webinar program for four years and our experience has led us to making these structural decisions.


What will be covered in the webinar series

Administering a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) requires specialised knowledge of the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector. As a new RTO Administrator you will be faced with a range of acronyms, VET terminology and complex systems. Velg Training has developed a mentoring program to assist RTO Administrators in the process of understanding their role within the organisation and the systems within the VET sector. Keep on track throughout the year with a one-hour pre-recorded webinar on what you need to consider and plan for over the coming months, followed by a live one hour Q&A webinar where you can ask questions and hear what questions other RTO Administrators may have. We are here to help you understand the sector, tasks and processes for administration and assist you in keeping up to date with all things VET.

NB. Note that while not a direct repeat of the 2016 program, many aspects will be the same, as this is based on the tasks to be undertaken throughout the year.
