Committee getting grounding in VET with NRL

THE House of Representatives Standing Committee on Employment, Education and Training continues to hold public hearings for its inquiry into the perceptions and status of vocational education and training (VET).

“The committee is approaching the end of the public hearings for this inquiry,” Committee chair Lisa Chesters MP said. "As part of today’s hearings, the committee will hear from the National Rugby League about its role in addressing negative perceptions of VET through the NRL-VET program.

“The hearings will also examine student experiences of VET with witnesses from the Monash Centre for Youth Policy and Education Practice, Australian Industry Group and the Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia,” Ms Chesters said.
