With the development of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft rapidly moving ahead, we are preparing for the new, futuristic transport terminals where they will take-off and land: vertiports.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority have prepared draft guidance material, also known as an advisory circular, which sets out the design guidelines for future vertiports and are seeking feedback. CASA have opened a public consultation to anyone active in the AAM, uncrewed, or crewed aviation industry to gain your feedback.
To learn more about vertiports before providing feedback, CASA is hosting a series of free webinars:
The paper also seeks feedback on the design of future initiatives to support women to achieve higher paying careers via vocational education and training pathways. The Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DWR) are also seeking experiences about what is most effective in attracting and retaining women in occupations that have historically had low female participation. To inform the design and implementation of the Guarantee, stakeholders are invited to read the Australian Skills Guarantee Discussion Paper and make a submission.

The West Australian government has signed up to a 12-month skills agreement with the Commonwealth to deliver about 18,800 fee-free training places worth more than $112 million.
The funding supports the new FREE IN ’23 initiative, which covers course fees for 58 full TAFE qualifications and course fees and resource fees for 56 skills sets. The course list is estimated to see approximately 8,500 fee free places in the care sector, 2,400 in technology and digital, 1,900 in agriculture, 1,500 in construction, 1,400 in hospitality and tourism, 300 in sovereign capability including manufacturing, and around 2,800 in other sectors including foundational skills.
After a lengthy process, state and territory skills ministers have approved the newest TAE Training Package. The qualifications approved include:
Importantly, this will mean existing qualified Trainers and Assessors will not be required to complete any qualification upgrades.
Federal, state and territory governments have opened a consultation process on the proposed new model of VET qualifications that is being publicly canvassed. There is an online survey that covers 14 questions on areas such as training product design, terminology, training delivery and approaches, collaboration and engagement, and implementation and transition.
Note: the reform is still in its early stages and a final decision is yet to be made. The survey closes 17 March 2023.
Thank you to all who have provided feedback into the first round of consultations for the VET in Schools Register. It is anticipated a second round of consultations will occur in min- January and a copy of the extract will be emailed to interested stakeholders for their endorsement. Watch this space for further updates.
