Have you completed the Smart and Skilled Survey yet?

Monday, August 10 2015

As you will have seen in last week’s edition of NMU, an independent review of Smart and Skilled is underway and researchers would like the input of those ACPET members with experience of Smart and Skilled. They have composed a survey for this purpose and we strongly encourage relevant members to take part in this survey and have your say on Smart and Skilled.

The researchers are looking to hear from the following groups:

• Providers who are approved Smart and Skilled contracted providers for 2015
• Providers with a NSW operation who applied for Smart and Skilled but were not approved for 2015
• Providers with a NSW operation who applied for Smart and Skilled but decided not to accept a contract for 2015
• Providers with a NSW operation who did not apply for Smart and Skilled
• Non-NSW providers who attempted to or did apply for Smart and Skilled.

If your RTO meets any of these criteria, you can participate in the survey by clicking this link http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2253068/Smart-and-Skilled-Review-Training-Provider-Survey

Ideally, the survey should be completed by a senior manager who was involved in the decision to apply or not to apply to be a provider under Smart and Skilled. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

A survey for students of approved Smart and Skilled Providers is also being conducted. If applicable, the researchers would appreciate the distribution of this link amongst your students http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2254823/Smart-and-Skilled-Program-Review-VET-Student-Survey. Students who complete the survey can enter the draw for one of three $300 JB Hi-Fi vouchers. ACPET would like to state that this cannot be deemed an enrolment incentive and used to a college’s detriment.

The closing date for both surveys is 5pm (EST) Friday 14th August.
