The concept of apprenticeship in vocational training in Australia dates back to the Australian Recognition Framework (ARF) (ANTA 1999). Section 5.1 of the National Assessment Principles states that any evaluation for national recognition must be conducted or conducted by a registered training organization. In general, all informants were, in all cases, supportive of their partnerships. For companies in all six cases, alliances have been beneficial to successful training and evaluations in the workplace. For NGOs, the main benefits have been improved services to industry, improved profile and networked networks that facilitate other alliances and projects, and increased skills and skills of RTO staff. In five of the six cases reviewed, unregistered organizations initiated partnerships by requesting training and evaluation services from OTRs. All wanted to recognize their training and the skills of their workers under the AQF, but did not want to become DES themselves. The desired services could be purchased by the OVS, which allowed them to continue their main activity. This is an approach that is confirmed by the partnership literature. In addition, an office review was carried out on the systems used by vocational training providers in the field of vocational training. The investigation found significant evidence of the extent of vocational training in Australia. More than 20 industrial sectors were identified on the basis of recommendations from national and public training advisory bodies (ITABs), accrediting bodies, industry associations and trade unions.
These partnerships have been identified, involving multinationals, small businesses, trade unions, consultants and industry associations that work with public and private NGOs to have their training and skills recognized within the Australian certification framework. Ausgepicing in the vocational education and training (VET) sector is a organisation entering partnership with a registered training organisation (RTO) to have the training and assessment that it undertakes recognized under the National Training Framework. Under such regulations, the RTO is responsible for ensuring the quality of the evaluations carried out by the other organization. As a result, the OTR is required to implement systems for monitoring and evaluating competency assessment and assessment processes. The RTO is also responsible for the granting of qualifications and/or performance statements resulting from this training. At the same time, partnerships are used in evaluations of school-training providers. National and public education policies promote partnerships for the implementation of vocational training programs.
