Australian Council for Private Education and Training, National Conference and Asia Pacific International Education Forum 2018
Posted 29 April 2019 1:26pm

“ACPET holds a national Conference each year, encourages members to benchmark against similar organisations and provides a tuition fee assurance scheme for Australian students.
The 2018 ACPET National Conference and Asia Pacific International Education Forum (APIEF) events were held from 29 – 31 August in Canberra at the National Convention Centre (NCCC).
Education is one of Australia’s largest industries. It is our largest service export industry, and 3rd largest overall. Australia is the world’s third most popular location for students (behind the US and UK). The contribution that the private tertiary sector, and in particular ACPET’s members, cannot be understated. Domestically private providers deliver the majority of VET, and a growing proportion of higher education. It’s important that we come together annually as a sector, to discuss how we continue to increase the traction that we’re collectively gaining each year and to improve the outcomes for our students, industry and the Australian community.
Attendees will also have the chance to interact with other delegates over the three days, who will include key leaders and influencers across our diverse sector.
Canberra has been rated the number three city to visit in 2018 by Lonely Planet. On the cusp of spring, the days are pleasantly temperate. Canberra’s national attractions help to tell a story that is uniquely Australian. We have special plans for the social calendar that will feature a prominent venue in our national capital, but there’s so much more to see and do.
The future is where a difference can be made, and that’s what this year’s event will be all about.”
