Velg Training in collaboration with The Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET)recently hosted their inaugural National VET PD week which proved to be a great success.
Both organisations are leading providers of professional development, dedicated to upskilling trainers and assessors. The opportunity was recognised for the two organisations to join forces and offer a blockbuster week comprising the top five attended webinars from each organisation in 2017.
During the National VET PD week this past October, the partnership saw over 1200 trainers and assessors from various training organisations attend the 10 sessions on offer.
ACPET CEO Rod Camm said, “Continual professional development is critical to ensuring a skilled workforce for our sector and I am pleased with the uptake we received, it shows dedication and commitment from providers”.
“Working with Velg Training to meet the needs of our sector has been really rewarding and I hope this will set the precedent for future endeavours” Mr Camm said.
Velg Training CEO Michelle Weaver said, “The intention of this joint initiative was to upskill, extend knowledge and provide practical guidance to VET practitioners across the country, in the most accessible and affordable way possible. My passion has always been providing quality professional development opportunities to the sector and I am delighted that the National VET PD week has reached so many”.
Velg Training Director of Content and Strategy, Kerri Buttery and ACPET’s National Professional Development Manager Sharyn Bellingham closed out the week with complementary webinar discussing workforce capability and opportunities for the sector.
Thank you to all who participated throughout the week.
