Monday, December 7 2015
Over 30 delegates attended and collaborated at the ACPET VET Forum at the Vibe Hotel on the Waterfront on Friday. The day covered a raft of topics and some briefings as to what RTOs can expect in 2016 and beyond. A big ACPET thanks to particpants and to the many expert presenters.
Minister Styles MLA joined us before lunch and provided an insight into opportunities both locally and with Asia while hinting at some funding reforms that would potentialy open up more contestability for funding.
The Central Australian and Top End Training networks are being reinvigorated and interested participants are invited to check the new web sites out on Facebook for CATN and TETN. Great work thanks to to Mel and Fiona at SITAC.
The after Forum Christmas function at Wharf One provided some well deserved down time from a busy day and the libations flowed into the evening.It was great to also welcome ACPET stalwarts Kay and Trevor Ganley who were recently the proud recipients of the Interational Provider of the Year for the contributions of the CHARTON BROWN institution.
