ACT Government Inquiry

30 Sep 2016

Correction notice regarding a news item on 29 August 2016, entitled "VET reputational damage".

NECA published a website news update on 29 August 2016 entitled "VET reputational damage, a cause for concern" that stated that an ACT Government Inquiry into Electrotechnology Training was still ongoing.

The Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) has pointed out, quite correctly, that that Inquiry was concluded in June 2016.  We apologise for any misinformation this may have caused to anyone who saw our news item.
