Influencing Workforce and VET policy
Getting involved in projects, committees and industry bodies in your sector provides an opportunity to contribute to policy or system-wide improvements for VET and workforce development.
This might include for example, being part of consultations or research, contributing to submissions to inquiries, proposals to government, or meetings with decision makers.
