Industry Consultation and its importance to RTO
Training and Assessments delivered by any RTO's need to have their learning resources validated in consultation with industry professionals. It is important that the assessments that are being used to assess vocational competency of any learners need to confirm the skill that is required in the current industry. Equally important are the VET trainers who need to have current skill and competencies for the qualification or training they deliver and assess. The assessment tools and resources that are used to qualify a learner must confirm the current practices in the industry and the competent learners meet the current skill requirements of the jobs in the market. So it is important that the learning tools and resources need to be validated to confirm that they are relevant to the current industry and it is mandatory for trainers to have current industry skills. For quality training, RTO's need to consult the industry and the experts so that benefits the learners and this in turns will market for quality training.
It becomes difficult for RTO's to have direct industry relation to maintain this industry engagement. In many instances, training the trainers with all current market skills is not viable in small RTO's because of the infrastructure and dedicated workplace environment. And for RTO's with many qualifications, it is difficult to have many connection and documenting updates from the trainers regarding their industry engagement become hectic if there is no systematic approach to it.
