Rod Camm addresses ACPET conference

Camm has had a long career in the vocational education and training (VET) field.  Prior to his appointment at NCVER he held the position of CEO of Skills Queensland. Before that he was Associate Director-General of the Queensland Department of Education and Training, and CEO of Construction Skills Queensland. He has performed numerous other executive roles across government and has sustained a strong relationship with industry.

As well as being recognised for leading VET and industry policy and strategy, Camm has completed an Executive Masters in Public Administration and has considerable experience in industrial relations.

Camm told the ACPET national conference in Perth on 29 August that “the challenge for ACPET’s members is about quality, without it we have nothing” He said that,in a deregulated higher education system with the extension of student fee subsidies to non-university providers, TAFE is well positioned to compete in the expanded sub degree market.”

Camm also called for greater uniformity between the states/territories on the funding of vocational education and training, saying that it is ” more fragemented than it ever was.”  The lack of national uniformity makes it difficult for national companies which need a “national solution”.
