A new student enrolment system is central to the successful operation
of TAFE NSW in an increasingly competitive vocational education
marketplace, Minister for Skills John Barilaro announced today.
John speaking in front of a camera recording"I have asked TAFE
NSW to commence a market testing process to identify the most
effective enrolment system for its current and future
requirements," Mr Barilaro said.
"A modern, cloud-based system will enable students to easily
manage their training records and TAFE NSW to adapt more quickly to
new policy settings.
"The new system will need to effectively support TAFE NSW's
financial systems in the new commercial and contestable training environment."
Mr Barilaro thanked TAFE NSW staff during a live video conference for
National TAFE Day for their hard work and efforts to enroll students
during the challenging 2015 enrolment period.
Mr Barilaro also acknowledged the work of the Legislative Council
inquiry into Vocational Education and Training in NSW, chaired by the
Honorable Paul Green MLC, in identifying the challenges faced by TAFE
NSW as the vocational education sector evolves.
"TAFE NSW needs a modern, flexible platform to satisfy rising
expectations from students, staff and industry and which will support
an innovative digital experience and learning environment.
"NSW is leading the country on jobs growth so we need to make
sure our public vocational education provider has the tools it needs
to effectively train our young people, reskill older workers and
maintain our strong economy," Mr Barilaro said.
TAFE NSW will continue to work with the current system until it is
confident a new system is working properly for students, staff and
industry partners. The new student enrolment system is expected to be
in place for the 2018 enrolment period and will be managed within the
forward budget estimates for TAFE NSW.
