“VET courses provide an opportunity to be able to develop a pipeline of talent to meet the roles of the futures. It’s actually thinking 5, maybe even 10 years in advance because the rate of change is so fast that if we just keep up with today we’re missing the opportunity of tomorrow.” - Mick Anstey, General Manager of People, Health Safety and Environment, Roy Hill

“The world of work is changing faster than ever. It’s not that we haven’t had change before, it’s just that the pace has really ramped up. As we go through the rapid change that’s happening at the moment, we’re going to need to keep reskilling and upskilling throughout our lives and VET is the main way of doing that. That’s what VET is all about.” - Sara Caplan, CEO, PwC Skills for Australia.
