A message from the Director

Welcome to the 24th edition of E-news. This final edition for 2012 provides you with information about legislative changes which expand the VRQA’s functions and area of responsibility.

The Education Legislation Amendment (VET Sector, Universities and Other Matters) Act 2012 has amended the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 transferring the regulation of apprenticeships and traineeships in Victoria from the Victorian Skills Commission to the VRQA. From 1 January 2013 the VRQA website will have information for employers and apprentices about training contracts, Apprenticeship Field Officers and advice about how to deal with disputes.

The revised Guide to the minimum standards and other requirements for school registration and the third information sheet for 2012 featuring statistics about registered schools in Victoria can now be downloaded.

I also draw your attention to new Standards for training packages developed by the National Skills Standards Council and endorsed by the Standing Council on Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment.

This edition includes details about the recently launched Victorian Skills Gateway, a one-stop-shop for information about jobs, courses and vocational training providers in Victoria.

On 10 December the VRQA moved office locations. Our new address is: 2 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne Vic 3000
Phone number: 9637 2806, new fax number: 9032 1579
Email: vrqa@edumail.vic.gov.au

The VRQA extends its best wishes for the festive season and 2013.
