Background

The VET Practitioners’ Network (the Network) supports providers of Training and Education (TAE) programs through a forum for:
    • discussion around the development of the teaching skills
    • sharing of resources
    • dissemination of information about delivery strategies
    • validation of assessment tools
    • providing information and feedback to various groups and organisations such as ASQA and the SSO.

The VPN wiki operates as a collaborative space to share experiences and knowledge for the purpose of improving the quality of the training and assessment work of VET practitioners involved in the delivery of teaching qualifications for the VET sector. The network provides the opportunity to share best practice and implementation issues, with the intent of improving educational outcomes. It provides professional development and learning to staff involved with the delivery of these qualifications.
