27th September 2018

Hello and welcome to VET News,

I hope you are all well. We have a full newsletter for you in this edition. Firstly, you should take note of the updates which have been released to a number of training packages including TLI, HLT, SIT and SIB. The other news item that I particularly liked is the VET Knowledge Bank resource just released by the NCVER. I think this will be a very valuable resource to our sector.

Well, we had a seriously great time at the National VET Conference in Adelaide, 12-14 September 2018. The Newbery team who attended this year included (from left to right) me, Bree, Kate, Jennifer and Sarah (Photo). We networked with many other businesses, caught up with many valued clients and even met some new clients! It was a pleasure to work with Velg Training again to participate in and present at this important event each year. The highlight for me was the talk given by Michael McQueen about the future of work. I just loved his insight.

Now, we had an absolutely huge response to our previous newsletter of our blog on the requirements for Training and Assessment Strategies (click). Following on from that, we are doing a two part series on the topic of the Amount of Training. This is such a confusing requirement in the standards and I am hoping to share with you our lessons learned and some of the tricks to compliance. You can access part one of The Amount of Training at the following link (click).

Good Training,

Joe Newbery

Compliance & Regulatory News

AVETMISS Validation Software (AVS)

RTOs need to start preparing for their annual submission (due from 2 January 2019), as we draw towards the end of 2018. RTOs should be reviewing student subject activity and data collection procedures to ensure that it can be reported accurately as at 31 December 2018.

In cases where RTOs do not have evidence that a student has signed the Student Declaration and Privacy Notice, RTOs must still submit their AVETMISS data to NCVER.
