Short but sweet from me this week and an opportunity to let the achievements of others do the talking:


It gave me a great sense of pride on International Women's Day to see BRW release the list of Australia's leading business women.

On behalf of ACPET I offer my warmest congratulations to Jamuna Gurung (11), Sarina Russo (12) and Maureen Houssein-Mustafa (29).

Three inspiring, self-made women creating significant opportunities for others to build careers and improve their life chances.

And on a different, but equally motivational note, ACPET congratulates our own Catherine Kearney who successfully completed the 50km Coastrek challenge in 13 hours to raise funds for the Fred Hollows Foundation.

Well done to all of you.

Claire Field
Chief Executive Officer


PS - for CRICOS members - we do know how difficult things are for you and while I can't say more in this newsletter there is good reason for optimism. You'll see this week's edition of NMU includes advice on a review of the Genuine Temporary Entrant criteria as well as an analysis of the latest international education statistics (which underline the deseprate need for change to support high performing VET providers and their students).  Please make sure you register for upcoming In Conversation with the CEO sessions (free) and/or the member-only sessions I'll run at various upcoming state forums. They provide opportunities for me to brief you directly on the changes we'll shortly see in the sector and for you to have your questions answered.
