Our approach to ensuring that our advice to government, the training system and industry is credible, is to maintain extensive and ongoing consultation processes that attend to customer needs. This is further enhanced by undertaking relevant projects that contribute to the learning culture of the industry.

In this way industries' needs and views are represented in all our work.
