VTA State Conference 2017

VTA state conf banner

The past quarter century has been one of the longest continuous economic expansions in Victoria’s history. A key factor underpinning this has been our highly skilled and productive workforce.

In a period that has seen rapid change in the education sector, TAFE’s role as a leader and fundamental contributor to the economic and social prosperity enjoyed by all Victorians continues unabated. TAFE’s physical presence is unparalleled, with more than 100 campuses across the state. Offering the most comprehensive range of courses for industry, community and individuals, the TAFE network continues to play the central role in providing the education and training that is the foundation of our prosperity.

But rapid change brings both opportunities and threats. While there is much to celebrate, there is a need for continued vigilance to ensure that the Victorian TAFE network is robust and effective, pro-active and responsive to continue to contribute to Victoria’s prosperity.

The 2017 VTA State Conference program will consider these and other related issues, challenging assumptions, celebrating the past, and looking to the future. With a cavalcade of exciting international and national speakers, the 2017 VTA conference promises to be thought provoking and one not to be missed.
