These visits included the Kangan’s Automotive Centre of Excellence, the Victorian Tunnelling Center as well as State agency Apprenticeship Victoria.
Following up on previous exchanges with the national branch of the Global Apprenticeship Network (see previous news: New partnerships in Australia and New Zealand), the Apprenticeships Employment Network (AEN) organised a day of meeting and visits to discuss and explore the role that the private sector could play for the future of Australia’s VET system.
