NVPDW: Changes in the VET Sector and What They Mean to Me as a Manager

14 October 2024
Online via Zoom Webinar

This very popular webinar that forms part of our 2024 National VET PD Week is presented by David Garner (who achieved an average score of 4.3/5 stars).  He will share his expertise and insights into staying up to date with everything that is happening in Vocational Education and Training.


This webinar has been designed to help you stay up to date with everything that is happening in Vocational Education and Training.
As Registered Training Organisations face a range of changes to the Sector: new Standards for RTOs, a revised AQF, the implementation of the now-defined self-assurance model, as well as a range of quality reform outcomes, we want to make sure you have the latest information and an idea of what it all might mean for your RTO.
What will the potential impact be from a management perspective? What type of preparation should we initiate? Perhaps we need to re-consider how compliance is viewed and managed.
 This session will explore the current status of VET Reform, the changes in training package development and assurance functions, and will look to help you be aware of, and ready for implementation.

Key topics covered in this webinar 

  • ASQA’s changing approach to compliance
  • Review of Standards for RTOs
  • Review of ESOS National Code
  • Review of the AQF
  • VET data streamlining project
  •  Changes to training package development
