Position Details

Training Market Quality Division (TMQ) seeks to ensure that the public funding provided to Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) on behalf of Victorian students gives those students the best chance of getting a job or pursuing further education and allows them to more fully participate in society. 

TMQ leverages the significant public investment in training and the VET Contract to encourage a subsidised training market in which students are able to choose from a range of training providers delivering high quality training in line with Victorian Government expectations and national regulatory standards.

As a result of the Skills First reforms and the Government’s Response to the Review of Quality Assurance in Victoria’s VET System (the Quality Review), TMQ has broadened its focus to quality assurance alongside funding and assurance, contractual compliance and integrity of provider.

An exciting opportunity exists for a highly self-motivated team player to co-ordinate, support and advise divisional colleagues on a number of reform and improvement activities. The successful applicant will be able to formulate and deliver reform activities effectively, think independently and contribute to policy discussions, assist in the development of business process improvements, work collaboratively and possess sound written and verbal communication as well as analytical skills. The position offers an opportunity to apply existing knowledge to enable practice and cultural change to support significant reform. The role can be challenging and at times demanding and therefore requires someone that can cope under pressure.
