ACPET is pleased to announce that the 2017 NSW State Forum will be taking place on Wednesday 15th March at Dockside on Darling Harbour. The State Forum is a full day, whole sector forum beginning at 9am (registration open from 8.30am) and concluding at 5.15pm. The Forum will be followed by an hour of networking drinks.

This state wide forum provides an excellent opportunity for members from across the sector to come together with stakeholders from government and industry to look to the future for providers in NSW. Our varied and exciting program is headed by The Hon John Barilaro MP Deputy Premier of NSW and NSW Minister for Skills, who will be delivering a key note address on the role that private providers have to play in education in NSW.

Other speakers include:

The Forum will also feature two World Café style Think Tanks. In these interactive sessions, attendees will consider a number of questions relating to an overarching theme and their thoughts will be fed back to the room. These Think Tanks will enable attendees to participate in the discussion and share their views. The subjects of these Think Tanks are:

• The Big Picture
• The Home Front


Learning Outcomes

Attendees of the NSW State Forum will enhance their knowledge of the issues surrounding the education sector in NSW, as well as gain a better understanding of what 2017 holds for the sector.

Presentations will focus on a number of  topics:

• insight into the make-up of buyer behaviour and how our members can change the perception of the private sector
• practical tips and advice on key elements of running an RTO

The forum will be interactive with a series of Think Tank style activities as well as an opportunity to ask questions of speakers throughout the day.
