Working together: Industry and VET provider training partnerships
The number and variety of industry-provider training partnerships in the vocational education and training (VET) sector has growing considerably. When developing our compliance guidelines, we include: recognising the competitive realities industries face and developing customised and flexible training to meet businesses’ needs; accepting ‘break even’ outcomes may be the best initial result a training provider can expect from a partnership; finding and developing staff who are responsible for the start-up phase of the partnership; evaluating and seeking feedback on the partnership; and, building training staff capabilities.
Benefits of a training partnership with Skills Recognition International Based upon the findings of the research, the following general guidelines emerge for training providers:
Recognise competitive realities businesses face as they try to build training and skills development
Build flexibility and customisation into training
Given the time involved in establishing a larger training partnership, we support the establishment of longer-term partnerships.
