NSW’s Skills Training Sector Leaders To Meet In Sydney On 21 May 2024

Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia (ITECA) 2 mins read

 

Leaders from across New South Wales’ skills training system are coming together on 21 May 2024 for critical conversations about the reforms required to put students at the heart of the skills training system.  It’s the state’s largest gathering of senior executives from independent quality Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) that provide skills training across the state.

The event is the 2024 RTO Business Summit – Sydney that will be held on 21 May 2024 at the Mercure Sydney.  It is being convened by the Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia (ITECA), the peak body representing independent skills training, higher education, and international education providers.

“The significance of this meeting can be found in official statistics that show independent quality RTOs support 85.5% of student enrolments in skills training across New South Wales,” said Troy Williams, ITECA Chief Executive.

The major focus of the 2024 RTO Business Summit – Sydney will be on the changes required to put students at the heart of the skills training system.  To this end, there will be advice from employers on how independent quality RTOs can adapt to the evolving needs of learners and industries alike, thus fostering innovation, creativity, and a culture of continuous improvement.

“Putting students at the heart of the skills training system not only enhances their learning experience but also instils a sense of ownership and responsibility, laying the foundation for lifelong learning,” Mr Williams said.

The keynote speech at the 2024 RTO Business Summit – Sydney will be provided by the Honourable Steve Whan MP, the Minister for Skills, TAFE and Tertiary Education.

Data from the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) shows the tremendous role of independent quality RTOs in delivering skills training across New South Wales. These providers support 83.8% of the 355,940 students in remote, rural, and regional areas across the state and 70.7% of the 57,715 Indigenous students.

“The meeting on 21 May 2021 will bring together independent quality RTOs and employers for a critical conversation about what’s required to address skills shortages that businesses across New South Wales face.  The starting point is to put students at the heart of the skills training system,” Mr Williams said.
