Delivering and accessing formal VET training can be a challenge in many industry areas or regions. 

Registered training organisations (RTOs) need to consider the costs and risks of delivering each qualification they offer. Similarly, learners and employers experience barriers to engaging in formal training.

Consultation is taking place throughout this project to understand the factors complicating demand, delivery and uptake of VET training. Eleven industry areas have been identified for qualitative research: 

  • arboriculture
  • protected and production horticulture
  • irrigation
  • landscaping
  • nursery operations
  • permaculture
  • pest management
  • aquaculture
  • fishing operations
  • seafood post-harvest operations
  • fisheries compliance.

You have the opportunity to participate and share insights into the factors impacting your industry. There are three ways to have your say: 

  • Interviews where we’ll discuss the nuances impacting particular industry areas or regions
  • Site visits to enterprises or training providers experiencing delivery or uptake challenges
  • Focus groups to be held around the country from June to September, where industry can discuss common challenges and experiences.
