The Australian Skills Quality Authority announces members of the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Advisory Council
ASQA provides no background on members who are, chair: Peter Costantini (comms consultant). Members: * Valerie Braithwaite (ANU) * Renee Hindmarsh (SA Skills Commissioner) * Grant Klinkum (NZ Qualifications Authority) * Adrienne Nieuwenhuis (commissioner, Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency) * Neil Quarmby (public sector management consultant) * Don Zoellner (Charles Darwin U, VET researcher).
ASQA will need some advising, with its authority extending to cover the training packages developed by the new Training Cluster organisations, (CMM March 24, 29).
As to membership, VET watchers wonder whether a Labor Government (if such there is after the election) might want to add a union representative to the advisory council.
