Media Release - Group training employers welcome steps to ensure high quality training

25-Feb-2015

Australia’s largest employer network of apprentices and trainees today welcomed federal legislation to ensure the delivery of high quality training, and the broader reputation of the VET sector.

The Chief Executive of Group Training Australia (GTA), Jim Barron said employers welcomed steps to ensure that training is delivered by high quality providers in a way that meets the needs of apprentices, trainees and employers.

He said the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Amendment Bill 2015 introduced into Parliament today by the Assistant Minister for Education and Training Senator Simon Birmingham would help to guarantee confidence in the vocational training system.

“We have seen a number of unscrupulous training providers who have delivered poor quality outcomes and raised questions among employers and students about the quality of vocational training.

“We strongly support the Minister’s determination to weed out the rogues and ensure that they do not tarnish Australia’s reputation for high quality skills training,” Mr Barron said.
