About this session

Effective industry engagement brings benefits to everyone in the VET sector when it works.  Students gain relevant experience and skills that make them competitive employees, employers enjoy a more highly skilled workforce and the industry as a whole reaps the rewards of having future-focussed training in the VET Sector.

This 90-minute, “Let’s Talk About” session will review the current compliance requirements and provide a range of industry engagement strategies for different RTO settings and industries.

Included in this 90-minute event is an exclusive 30-minute Q&A with ASQA representatives, where attendees can ask live questions to develop a deeper understanding of how to apply effective industry engagement strategies.
