A message from the Director

Welcome to the 22nd edition of E-news. This edition features important announcements about the membership of the VRQA Board. I am pleased to inform you that Mr Tim Smith has been appointed as the VRQA Chair commencing on 17 October 2012 for a period of three years. Tim joined the VRQA in July 2011 as a Board member. Since joining the VRQA he has been active in the development of the VRQA’s future strategic direction and as a member of several committees. Details of Tim’s background can be found on the VRQA website.

The new VRQA Future Direction Statement reflects government policy, contemporary regulatory practice and the VRQA’s changed scope and powers. I would like to sincerely thank our stakeholders who participated in focus groups early in the planning process, this feedback was invaluable in formulating the Future Direction Statement.

Mr Stuart Hamilton’s term of office as Chair of the VRQA ended on 16 October 2012. Stuart was appointed as inaugural Chair in 2006 when the VRQA was established and it has been my pleasure to work with him over the six years since his appointment. Stuart has consistently provided clear direction and a commitment to improving the quality of education and training in Victoria.

Ms Glenda Strong also retired from the VRQA Board after three years service and Ms Patricia Neden has been reappointed to a fixed term position to assist in the transition of apprenticeship and traineeship regulation to the VRQA.

We welcome any feedback on this edition and I encourage you to email your suggestions for future article topics to: vrqa@edumail.vic.gov.au.
