Prevocational Training Council (PvTC)

What is the purpose of the Prevocational Training Council (PvTC)?

The role of the Prevocational Training Council is to ensure state-wide coordination of the prevocational training networks and develop resources which will improve prevocational training in NSW. The PvTC promotes high quality training for prevocational trainees in NSW. The PvTC advises HETI on the procedures and standards that govern the operation of the Prevocational Education and Training Program, and ensures the effective functioning of the Network Committees for Prevocational Training (NCPT) in NSW.

The Prevocational Training Council Terms of Reference outline the members of the PvTC and key objectives for the work of the council. PvTC Terms of Reference
