Katrina Higham attended ITECA in Surfers Paradise earlier this month and attended some thought provoking sessions on the sector and private education. In particular, Kate Carnell from the Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman (ASBFEO) provided a terrific key note on the needs of small business, who are now the major employers of apprentices Australia-wide. Businesses need to have training that is agile, flexible, relevant and responsive to help with the skills shortage and needs of all industries.
Other presenters delivered sessions on micro credentialing and micro learning, along with the need to be more collaborative and focus on building smart, strategic partnerships for the benefit of the learners.
