Message from the Executive Director Vocational Education

Vocational Education at RMIT complements the tertiary nature of the global university of technology, design and enterprise. Vocational Education is an integral part of the essence of the University and enhances the benefits RMIT offers its students.

We are renowned for our teaching excellence that is in turn informed by industry expertise and connections, and professional practice; as well as employer input to program design and delivery, and pathways to vocational and professional careers. These strengths will always play a central role in our vocational education program and provide a secure foundation, from which to embrace the opportunities that the changing market now presents us with.

Our Vocational Education Plan identifies four priorities aimed at enhancing the University's global reach through innovative educational solutions which meet the needs of our students, industry and urban communities. These priorities are: pedagogy - informed by industry and practice, global orientation, a tertiary model and financial sustainability. The refreshed Vocational Education website includes further information about our Vocational Education Plan - launched last year - and links to resources to assist you in your work.

I look forward to working with colleagues across the University throughout this year, as we continue to implement the VE Plan.

Keith Cowlishaw
Executive Director Vocational Education
