It’s a unique opportunity to actively engage with those who influence the issues that affect the sustainability of your business. Program highlights include:


    The Australian Government is implementing its ambitious $525 million reform package ‘Delivering Skills for Today and Tomorrow’. Find out about the changes that aim to modernise the VET sector and how they allow quality providers deliver the quality outcomes students and their employers are looking for.

    The Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) is reviewing its engagement with Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) to provide them with greater support to understand and meet their compliance obligations. It’s a changed dynamic and this presentation will outline what providers can expect from the sector’s regulator.

    This presentation will review the outcomes of the Australian Government’s review of the VET students loan program including options to improve the experience for both providers and students, whilst ensuring that the program is delivering on the government’s policy objectives.


    Following extensive consultation, Steven Joyce present its his report ‘Strengthening Skills: Expert Review of Australia's Vocational Education and Training System’ to the Australian Government, a document that’s become the blueprint for reform. Hear from Mr Joyce about the insights he gathered talking to independent providers and the opportunities that he believes they have.

    In an environment in which the Australian Government is reforming both funding and regulation of the VET sector it’s important that the business community drives the debate. Australia’s leading champion for small business, James Pearson, will set out how you can play an active role in advocacy activities.

    Australia’s independent vocational education and training system does the heavy-lifting in providing the economy with the skills it needs. At this insightful data-filled presentation, you’ll get the state-by-state and sector-by-sector data that highlights the great role of providers, and how they achieve this despite declining government funding.

    The Federal Opposition has a long-standing commitment to supporting Australians access vocational education and training throughout their working careers. This presentation will outline where the Federal Opposition sees the policy priorities as being and the role of independent providers in the vocational education and training (VET) sector.

    At the end of the day, the VET system is all about ensuring that the employers have the skills needed to support their business. Hear from a business leader with unique insights into the skills requirements of an organisation with a diverse workforce that welcomes more than 2,000 ships each year.
