616 views

Published on

This session will provide insights into opportunities for your RTO and what the VET environment may look like into the future. It is underpinned by the analysis of VET policy and directions.

See how RTos are innovating, collaborating and evolving their approach as future orientated providers by looking at case studies of good practice. The RTOs showcase exhibit a high level of resilience together with a strategic focus, particularly in light of the introduction of new VET initiatives and different funding arrangements where RTOs have needed to diversify, niche, collaborate or die.
