Formal VET training is highly valuable to learners and employers alike, preparing people for employment opportunities and developing a skilled workforce. However, often training is not available where it is needed.  

Registered training organisations (RTOs) must be viable, which starts with accurately gauging demand for, costs of and risks in training. Similarly, learners and employers experience barriers to obtaining formal training. The challenges for all parties can be particularly pronounced in regional, rural and remote areas.  

This project is exploring the factors complicating demand, delivery and uptake of VET training to produce a report outlining the challenges faced and recommendations for potential solutions.

The scope of this project will focus on the agriculture, forestry, pulp and paper and seafood industries.
