Consultations on Unduly Short Courses and Training Product Reform
Monday, February 5 2018
The federal government has released consultation papers on unduly short courses and training product reform.
The consultation paper on unduly short courses follows ASQA’s report in June 2017 that recommended the further defining and setting of mandatory training requirements under certain circumstances and related obligations for providers. The current consultations seek to gather stakeholder views on those recommendations.
The consultation on training product reform is essentially exploring options to ensure training products (training packages, accredited courses) equip learners with the skills to respond to the changing nature of work and particularly the impact of technology.
The consultation website provides copies of the consultation documents and details of the submission process. Submissions on both consultations are due 9 March 2018.
ACPET has been deeply engaged in both these issues through several advisory and reference groups and will be making submissions on both. Members are most welcome to forward advice to inform these submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org by COB 19 February 2018.
