ACT Australian Apprenticeships Program (User Choice) Review Focus Groups – RSVPs Open

RSVPs for the ACT Australian Apprenticeships Program (User Choice) Review Focus Groups are now open.

The ACT Education and Training Directorate (the Directorate) is reviewing parts of the Australian Apprenticeships Program (User Choice) in the ACT. Registered training organisation (RTO) focus groups will form part of the suite of consultations.

There will be a cap of 20 attendees in each focus group and a limitation of one (1) representative per RTO. Once a focus group has reached its cap, no further RSVPs will be accepted. Where there is significant demand, additional focus groups will be considered.

Please Note: Preference will be given to RTOs that hold an ACT Funding Agreement (ACTFA)

The focus groups will be an informal discussion on the specified topic. There will be questions to prompt conversation, however, RTOs are encouraged to bring ideas. It will also be beneficial if your organisation completes the corresponding survey prior to the focus group. The list of the focus groups is provided below.
