The AFA was pleased to be involved with the Victorian training sector meeting last week, the first of the national series of events, in relation to Vocational Education and Training (VET).

Amongst the first to have their say about the future of training in face-to-face consultations led by the new Assistant Minister for Education and Training, Senator Simon Birmingham, the AFA contributed to the discussions related to VET reform.

"Our government is embarking upon an ambitious program of VET reform to lift the quality of both training providers and their courses, so as to further enhance the contribution VET makes to the employment prospects of students and the competitiveness of Australia's economy," said Senator Birmingham.

As this was the first meeting, the AFA will report the outcomes to members once all of the meeting have occurred across Australia.
