The event, held by the peak body representing independent skills training, higher education, and international education providers, the ITECA (Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia), is designed to bring together key stakeholders from the skills training system to analyse the delivery of skills training.

According to ITECA, the significance of Perth’s 2024 RTO Business Summit is underscored by National Centre for Vocational Education Research data that highlights the substantial contribution of independent RTOs to the skilling of Western Australia’s workforce.  For example, in the mining sector independent RTOs support 90.3 per cent of student enrolments in the Certificate III in Surface Extraction Operations and 100.0 per cent of the student enrolments in the Certificate III in Drilling Operations.

“This event is all about empowering senior executives from the skills training system with the information needed to make informed decisions about the future of their institutions,” said Troy Williams, ITECA Chief Executive.

“With independent RTOs doing the heavy lifting in providing Western Australian businesses with a skilled and educated workforce, this makes the summit this year’s key event for the state’s skills training sector.”

The keynote speech at the summit will be delivered by the Western Australian Minister for Training and Workforce Development, the Hon. Simone McGurk MLA.

“It’s great to be showcasing the commitment of independent RTOs to delivering quality student outcomes,” said Williams, “particularly since the official data shows these providers lead in key metrics of quality, including student satisfaction with assessment, teaching, and learning resources.”

The 2024 RTO Business Summit – Perth will be held at the Pan Pacific Perth on 30 April 2024, and tickets can be booked online at
