27 Nov 2020

The National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA) today welcomed the Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business announcement of the appointment of Ms Saxon Rice to the role of the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Regulator as CEO of Australia Skills Quality Authority (ASQA).

Oliver Judd, Executive Director and NECA spokesperson, said:

“The Australia Skills Quality Authority is an important working partner of NECA, so we welcome Ms Rice’s appointment as CEO. NECA wishes her good luck as she starts this new and important role.

“We look forward to developing a collaborative working partnership with her over the next five years. Continuing to work with ASQA to ensure regulation of VET in our industry is fair, transparent and efficient is an important part of our purpose.

“NECA would also like to thank Dr Irene Ioannakis for her service as Deputy Chief Commissioner of ASQA. She has been invaluable to the organisation during her time within the role. NECA wishes her good luck in her future endeavours once she finishes at the end of this year.”

VET is an important component of NECA’s operations and it does not stop once members complete their apprenticeships. To match a constantly evolving industry NECA’s focus is to ensure members receive technical training sessions, business skills training as well as business development and marketing.
