NCVER Survey on RTO role of RTOs in delivering programs for school leavers
Monday, March 30 2015
You're invited to participate in an important survey on the role of private RTOs in delivering programs for 15 to 19 year old School Leavers.
This research is funded by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) and is being conducted by a team of researchers from the Brotherhood of St Laurence, the University of Melbourne and Victoria University.
The number of 15 to 19 year olds in the private VET sector has grown considerably in recent years. This research will identify the ways in which private RTOs have responded to the needs of this cohort of early school leavers, as well as build a deeper understanding of changes that may yet be needed to support the role played by private RTOs.

At the project’s conclusion (October or November 2015), all interested participants will be invited to attend a roundtable forum in Adelaide involving stakeholders from across national and state governments, industry, and the VET sector. Participants will also be invited to be involved in webinars designed to reach a larger audience across Australia.
The project is assisted by an advisory group with representatives of the:
• Australian Council for Private Education and Training
• Foundation for Young Australians
• National Centre for Vocational Education Research
• VISTA: Association of VET Professionals
• Department of Education, Training and Employment (Queensland)
