VET sector professional development 2019

Following feedback from stakeholders, the Department has been reviewing the professional development programs being delivered to the WA vocational education and training (VET) sector.

In 2019 the Department will be reshaping its approach with a view to hosting VET sector forums with a focus on best practice, emerging VET sector trends, RTO quality, regulatory and compliance issues to build capability and promote excellence in the VET sector.

An events team in Department’s Communications and Marketing area will lead the delivery of professional development programs, along with current activities which celebrate VET sector excellence, including WorldSkills competitions and the WA Training Awards. VET sector stakeholders are invited to provide input and suggest topics and issues that could be covered at the forums.

The VET community and VET practitioners will continue to receive information about events, seminars and workshops through the Department website and VETinfonews. Further information will be available in the coming weeks.
