Committee Structure

In late 2015, the Vocational Education and Training (VET) Re-registration Working Group (VETRWG) was established by the Vice Chancellors Advisory Group (VCAG), to co-ordinate the University's preparations and application for re-registration as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

As of 2017, the VETRWG was re-constituted into two groups - an Executive Group chaired by PVC HE, Dr Steve Shanahan, and an Operational Group chaired by the RTO Re-registration Project Manager, Louise King. Louise manages the re-registration project under direction of the Executive Group. Both the Executive and Operational groups will continue to function until RTO registration is renewed.
