National VET PD Week


It's back again! Velg Training is committed to upskilling VET Practitioners through providing access to affordable, quality professional development this November.

The 2021 National VET PD Week will look closely at the all important self-assurance process, validation.

This year's National VET PD Week is inspired by the release of the NCVER research report (Authored by Francesca Beddie):  Begin with the end: RTO practices and views on independent validation of assessment, which sought to "deepen understanding of the persistent issues registered training organisations (RTOs) encounter when conducting independent moderation and validation of assessments, and of the nature of industry involvement in these processes”.

The report revealed the need for "more emphasis on the continuous professional development of trainers, and particularly assessors, as part of quality assurance"

It is clear that there is "currently an appetite among RTOs for change that values excellence and professionalism in training outcomes”

and a  “desire for more professional development for RTO staff and more opportunities for them to share experience”.

With the support of NCVER, Velg Training has built the 2021 National VET PD Week in direct response to this need!

It is specifically designed for all VET Practitioners to upskill, extend knowledge and provide practical guidance relating directly to their role in Validation practices. 5 VET experts will facilitate 5 highly-targeted professional development sessions over 5 days.
