National VET PD Week

The quality of training and assessment in the VET sector is paramount in our industry.

Velg Training and ACPET have been providers of professional development to trainers and assessors for many years and have come together to share a common goal: to provide trainers and assessors access to high quality professional development at an affordable price.

In an inaugural event coming this October, Velg Training and ACPET will launch the 2017 National VET PD Week.

Ten leading VET experts will facilitate 10 targeted webinars over 5 days at reduced rate of $49.00 each (regardless of your membership status with either organisation). The top 5 webinars from each organisation have been selected based on their previous success and the fantastic feedback they have received in the past.

These very popular webinars cover a range of topics specifically designed for trainers and assessors to upskill, extend knowledge and provide practical guidance relating directly their role in the VET sector.

A complimentary webinar is also planned – and will be hosted after the week’s PD has concluded. This will give attendees the opportunity to provide live feedback about their experiences and to offer suggestions about how Velg Training and ACPET can continue to develop PD that is relevant and valuable to the sector in 2018.
