VRQA stakeholders from the education and training sector have recently shared their views about important issues facing the sector and the role of the VRQA in engaging with these issues.
In the past month the VRQA has held two important events – the VRQA Stakeholder Breakfast and an Apprenticeships and Traineeships Stakeholder Forum.
At the VRQA Stakeholder Breakfast VRQA Board members canvassed the views of stakeholders representing schools, vocational education and training providers, and apprenticeships and traineeships about key issues facing the sector.
An update on regulatory field services activities was provided at the Apprenticeship and Traineeship Stakeholder Forum. Participants and VRQA Board and staff members also explored issues of importance to the sector including competency based completion processes and the employer approval process.
Both events will inform the VRQA’s strategic planning for 2014-16 and are part of the VRQA’s ongoing work with stakeholders.
