19 Observations in transition Don’t underestimate the nimbleness of the private sector Invest in professional development of all staff about the changes to ensure consistent information Marketing and promotion of the TAFE brand vs individual courses. TAFE value-add Ensure engagement/retention of students is front of mind for all staff and they understand why 19

20 Operating successfully in a contestable funded model Three key messages emerged in 2010 /2011 and these remain key issues: 1.massive and difficult change processes for TAFE business systems to ensure quality data collection and compliant reporting arrangements. 20

21 Observations after 2 years Cash flows Pre-2011 – Training plan negotiated annuallyresulting JanDec Salaries paid Reconciliation of fortnightly/funding delivery against received fortnightlyTraining Plan 2011 Funding monthly in arrears based on actual UoC activity salaries fortnightlyfunding monthly based on accurate/complete data JanDec Scenario: enrolment on 1 Feb 400 hours/full-time student. Custom and practice: apportion over twelve months (start and end date) ie activity over 10 months. Assuming active enrolment: 40 hours paid for each of Mar – Nov BUT costs incurred in Feb – June. Institute out of pocket. Compounding problem if withdrawn. Income in Jan/Feb – how much activity in previous month? 21

22 Workplace Relations – Private RTOs Other providers receiving government funding (153 providers) - 4 providers with an enterprise agreement (2.6%) The number of RTOs with enterprise agreements does not necessarily relate to teaching staff industrial conditions Of the total 311 providers, only 16 have agreements (5.1%) only 3 with agreements that have a teaching focus (Careers Australia, Navitas, & MADEC) ie. 0.96%, or in fact 2 agreements 0.64% that operate in Victoria as the Navitas enterprise agreements do not cover employees in Victoria 22 Victorian TAFE Association Inc

28 Operating successfully in a contestable funded model (cont.) understanding the value proposition that puts TAFE front and centre in the client’s mind and changing the focus of Institute marketing accordingly to position TAFE as ‘best of brand’; and 3.the need to direct substantial resources to nurture and build customer services behaviours of front line staff and all staff who interface generally with employers, students and the local community. This has required cultural and behavioural changes and is seen as a positive benefit of being in a competitive VET environment. Staff have been more pro active and entrepreneurial to ensure students enrolled, enjoy and value their participation and remain as students.

29 29 Key Messages for NSW from others experiences Setting the strong foundations of quality assurance and compliance of Providers is critical – not only at the regulatory / audit stage (ASQA) but on entry to the contestable market / approval to offer govt subsidised training (NSW Govt). Ensure all TAFE student administration and information systems are fully compliant with the requirements necessary for efficient operation in a contestable market. Plan well ahead. TAFE needs a fair outcome from the public provider “Base Cost” funding contribution from govt that matches the real costs of being a public provider. Outstanding customer relations with students, prospective students and employers are essential. Revised commercial focus required from all staff - every $ a TAFE receives is a commercial $, subject to risk in a contestable market.
