VRQA and BUSY At Work meet with stakeholders

On 3 December 2013 a number of stakeholders involved in apprenticeships and traineeships in Victoria attended a workshop hosted by the VRQA.

The workshop was attended by BUSY At Work Chief Executive Officer Paul Miles and senior VRQA representatives including Tim Smith, Chair VRQA and Lynn Glover, Director VRQA.

Stakeholders had the opportunity to meet BUSY At Work personnel and hear more about their role in the provision of regulatory field services for apprenticeships and traineeships in Victoria.

The discussion with stakeholders generated several themes for further consideration by the VRQA. These themes included suggestions for reviewing the business hours of the VRQA 1300 722 603 number and how best to communicate with different stakeholders about information and support available in relation to apprenticeships and traineeships.

It is expected that further stakeholder events for apprenticeships and traineeships stakeholders will be conducted in 2014.
