As part of Velg Training’s vision, to educate, inspire and empower Australia's VET community, the Validation Directory allows RTOs to simply search for other RTOs who have opted into the program with a similar scope and validation requirements.
The Velg Training VET Directory is a searchable database of organisations and consultants that specialise in Vocational Education and Training (VET) products and services. Our aim is to provide a resource for finding a wide range of products that can be browsed by specific search parameters.
The National VET Conference provides the opportunity for VET practitioners across the sector to obtain the most current and relevant information, essential in understanding and responding to key developments in Vocational Education and Training (VET).
The theme for the 2019 conference is ‘Innovate | Activate | Educate’ and all submissions will be reviewed for their relevance to the conference theme as well as alignment to Velg Training’s mission statement: to Educate, Inspire and Empower the VET sector.
The 2018 National VET Conference attracted just over 1200 attendees, making it the largest annual gathering of VET managers and practitioners from across Australia.
Attendees of the conference will be divided into two distinct client groups – Management and Practitioners.
Furthermore, presentations should ideally align with one of the following 7 main categories:
1 Tech in VET – many RTOs are moving towards cloud based and paperless processes. This impacts greatly on the management practices within the RTO including communication, storage and record keeping. This stream focuses on how technology impacts on management practices within an RTO (this stream is not related to the impact of technology on learning, teaching or assessment).
2 VET Shapers – leading inspirational VET experts that challenge thinking by providing new ways of learning or sharing innovative management practices in the VET sector.
It is mandatory that any presenter who has not presented at one of our events (conference, summit, workshop or webinar) in the past two years submit a 3-5 minute audio visual file of their presentation skills as part of the review and selection process. This does not need to be based on your topic that you are submitting, this is purely to evaluate your communication and presentation skills to a large audience.
Feedback from our National Conference Attendees 2018 indicate that they look forward to and expect, high-level presentation skills that are engaging (not “death by PowerPoint” and not “monotone”). Please remember this when considering your application.
Attendees of our NVC sessions value highly the ability to walk away with innovative ideas, approaches or practical examples of how the information they have just learned can be applied in their day to day environment.

Proposals will be reviewed by the National Conference Committee and evaluated with the following criteria foremost:
The National VET Conference Committee will have to choose among many proposals, some of which may be similar, and will seek balance among topics and areas of importance to the delegates. Proposals of equal merit cannot in all instances be selected when the result would be an imbalance in the conference’s overall coverage of topics, audiences and regions.
