ACPET News | 2 July 2014

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

The private training sector has lost a key advocate following the sudden resignation on 2 July of Claire Field, the respected chief executive of the Australian Council for Private Education and Training.

In a statement ACPET said Ms Field was leaving to pursue “new challenges” after four years in the job. Company secretary Larry Davies is now acting CEO pending the appointment of a Claire Fieldpermanent successor.

The suddenness of the departure caught the sector by surprise, but ACPET chairman Martin Cass said it was entirely her decision to leave to pursue other opportunities and there was nothing to read into her departure:

Ms Field has made a significant contribution to the private education and training sector during her four years as CEO of ACPET. Ms Field has been a strong advocate for ACPET members during a period of substantial change in both the higher education and vocational education and training sectors. She has also been instrumental in strengthening ACPET’s focus on quality and lifting membership standards.

Ms Field is the second recent senior departure at ACPET after policy and research manager Ben Vivekanandan left in March to become chief of staff to new Victorian skills minister Nick Wakeling. He was replaced by Alan Keith from ACPET’s Canberra office.
