February Members Lunch Box: Australia’s Ideas Boom: Opportunities and Implications for RTOs

12 February 2018

Lunch and learn! Join us for our 'Members Lunch Box - bite sized PD' monthly webinar series, where we will feature a timely topic presented by an expert from the VET sector. These are exclusive sessions open to Velg Training Members, including Individual, Corporate and Sibling Account holders. 

12 February 2018 : Australia’s Ideas Boom: Opportunities and Implications for RTOs

Presented by: Allison Miller

The Australian Government’s "Ideas" Agenda means we need people with skills which support innovative and entrepreneurial activity. The Australian Skills Industry Council's (ASIC) National Schedule for training package review and development supports this by requiring SSO to focus on "capitalising on advancements in technology, reflecting new jobs in the economy and addressing emerging skills needs" and by "responding to industry restructuring and keeping pace with new ways of working".

RTOs will need to be ready to support this skills development – So, what are the opportunities and what are the implications that RTOs should be planning for now?

Key topics covered within webinar

  • What is the 'Ideas' Agenda, and why is it happening?
  • How is this impacting VET and RTOs?
  • What are the opportunities?
  • What are the implications?
