    Catherine Ng (CIT Solutions) and Steve Petit (AIF) - the big picture changes happening in VET

    In this episode Claire is joined by two leaders steering their organisations through the profound changes that the VET sector is responding to in terms of the changes in the industries they train for, the changing demands from their learners, increased digitisation and more.

    Catherine Ng is the General Manager of CIT's commercial arm, CIT Solutions, and Steve Petit is the CEO of AIF. Despite the differences in their organisations - these two leaders are tackling many of the same strategic challenges (and Steve also has important insights from a recent successful self-assurance audit).
