“The recipe for success has always involved the same things. Leadership, determination, innovation and, of course, the skills of our workforce!”
“Whatever may evolve out of the debate about the future of the vocational education and training system, industry leadership and high quality training and assessment by professional teachers and trainers must remain non-negotiable.”
