From the CEO
Following the announcement by The Minister for Industry, the Hon Ian Macfarlane MP regarding the Government’s significant reforms to the vocational education and training (VET) sector, TLISC has released a statement welcoming the move which will provide industry with a greater voice in VET reform. TLISC’s media release is available here.
It was pleasing to see the excellent turnout at TLISC’s presentation to the 2014 National VET Conference hosted by Velg in Brisbane on 11-12 September. This forum gave me the opportunity to meet with delegates from Registered Training Organisations who deliver our qualifications, which is always valuable.
In the July edition of the TLISC eNewsletter we announced our partnership with the International Specialised Skills Institute Inc (ISS Institute) to offer two international Fellowships in the amount of $12,500 each.
ISS Institute has completed the selection process for the 2014 TLISC International Fellowships with the quality of applications being very high. I am happy to announce the following two people were selected by the selection panel: Jarrod Weaving of the Australian Maritime College and Paul Kahlert of All Purpose Transport.
Read more about Jarrod and Paul’s exciting proposals later in this newsletter.
