VET Manager Network and professional development in 2019 (for CCA members only)

Keep abreast of new events and to engage with experts in areas of interest.

Share and develop new skills with your professional colleagues.

CCA's second VET Manager session for 2019 will be held on Tuesday 30 April at the Hyde Park Inn, 271 Elizabeth Street, Sydney.

Workshop 2

The second 2019 CCA VET Managers workshop continues its focus on collaboration and sharing between colleges. The project aims to build training products for the sector and to upgrade the skills of VET managers and professionals of CCA members. The agenda includes relevant targeted advice and engaging activities.

There are no prerequisites for participating. If you haven’t attended a meeting for a while, or are new to your role, this is a unique opportunity.

This workshop on 30 April will continue to explore compliance, this time with a specific lens on RTO performance under NSW Smart and Skilled and CSO contracts.

  • What are the critical issues for Training Services NSW? Ask questions and explore how quality is perceived by NSW Department of Industry monitoring teams, how this links to your AQTF compliance and what you can do to minimise organisational disruptions and non-compliances.
  • Explore tools and approaches to help you with staff engagement, CSO and AQTF compliance.
  • We will also work on new products and ideas for training solutions, building on the input from our previous VET Manager meetings.

Sue Flindell, an expert VET trainer and facilitator from Positive Training Solutions, will again facilitate the meeting to bring coherence – and fun – to the day.

Participation is free for CCA members; register through the link below:
