VET Managers Professional Development

VET Manager Network and professional development in 2020 (for CCA members only)

The CCA 2020 Professional Development program for VET managers includes an ambitious plan to reach more of our members and deliver in some accessible regional as well as Sydney CBD locations.

The last meeting of 2019 of the VET Managers group took place on Thursday 5th December 2019 in the Sydney CBD.
Sue Flindell of Positive Learning Solutions facilitated the program and helped participants to formulate priorities for our 2020 project to build community education VET manager, trainer and assessor skills in communication, exploration of new ideas, and the ability to implement change – including contractual and compliance requirements.

The meeting continued our model of informing, networking and workshopping issues and practices useful for professional VET practice. We covered areas identified by members around quality compliance processes and delivering strong customised products specific to the not-for-profit community education training sector. We further developed some of the ideas raised at the CCA Brisbane November conference. A highlight of the workshop was an open session with PwC Skills for Australia on the new Foundation Skills Training Package.

Additional meetings will take place through June 2020, including locations in both western and northern NSW. The meetings will be complemented by facilitated online networking.

Program funding

The 2020 CCA VET managers meetings and network activities are funded by the NSW Department of Education through the 2019-20 ACE Teaching and Leadership Program, which is aligned to the Department’s priority to improve adult and community education outcomes.
