December Members Lunchbox - Changes to Funding Contracts and What This Means for your Business

4 December 2017
RECORDED

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. 

Webinar recorded on the 4 December 2017: Changes to Funding Contracts and What This Means for your Business

Presented by: Nick McEwan Hall

Change is inevitable.

But sometimes the pace of change takes our breath away. This is very much the case with funded cohorts within VET. Over the past 5 years the way in which State Governments tender out funding contracts, what is included in them, and the way in which RTOs receive payment has changed in every jurisdiction. The compliance burden of keeping on top of these changes has increased, especially for RTOs who deliver across state borders.

What was covered in the webinar

This presentation will look at a number of questions:

  • Why do we want a funding contract?
  • How do we best prepare to have an EoI that is successful?
  • What do we do if we are unsuccessful?
  • How do we keep on top of the changes – with specific note to the expected changes for 2018

This event is a pre-approved professional development opportunity offering 25 Right Way Professional Development Points.

Who should attend

  • CEO/Owner
  • RTO/Compliance Manager
  • Private Individual

RTO/Compliance Manager
Latitude Coaching

Nick has been a longstanding and robust contributor to the Australian Vocational Education & Training (VET) sector for over 17 years. A qualified VET practitioner, DISC facilitator, trainer, workplace and business coach, his knowledge of the training and education system is highly acclaimed Australia wide.

Starting his career in Secondary Schools and transitioning to VET, his breadth of experience spans training & assessment, operations, strategic management, client relationship management, quality, data management and instructional design. He has a comprehensive knowledge of the Victorian Training Guarantee and has led small to multi-national RTOs and NPOs through external audits.

Nick has a unique ability to break down the ever changing complexities within the VET sector in a practical way which enables organisations to ‘simply get on with their core activities’ with confidence and efficiency.

A committed advocate for equality and vocational opportunities, Nick has worked with many RTOs in the Non For Profit sector including the Brotherhood of St Laurence. His focus and determination for helping others achieve and flourish has resulted in many NFPs not only remaining operable, but commercially sustainable in their provision of training for the unemployed and marginalised.

Volunteering for many years on the Board of Governance at the Fitzroy Learning Network, Nick was a key driver of new program initiatives and fundraising activities to alleviate major learning gaps and lack of opportunities to disadvantaged residents.

In 2012 Nick was a recipient of the ‘Whitelion Chairperson's Award for Employment’. He led his team across a joint partnership with Telstra to deliver programs to unemployed youth which resulted in an unprecedented number of permanent job offers within Telstra call centres.

Nick currently manages an independent RTO, ‘The Open Door Coaching Group’, along with steering his own consulting and coaching practices, ‘Latitude Coaching’ and ‘AVETMESS’. An active presenter at conferences around Australia, he runs training workshops & coaching sessions to a broad range of education and business groups. He speaks on a variety of subjects including change management, workplace values, team building and a wide scope of VET related topics.

When not working, you will find Nick indulging his fascination with Asian art and artefacts, exploring art exhibitions, enjoying an espresso coffee with friends over a joke or two and getting out of the city to wind down and relax.

A fun and straightforward presenter Nick has a knack for striking the elusive balance between theory, practicality, humour and meaningful activity. Participants of Nick’s sessions will leave feeling relaxed and empowered to make a real difference.
