The foundation meeting for the Greater Northern Region Trainer and Assessor Network was held on March 30th, 2009.  At that time, a survey of our trainer and assessor members was conducted.  The outcomes of this survey were used to develop the principle objectives and priorities of the Network.

Members wanted to see the network offer a variety of professional development activities, including; half and full day workshops, unstructured networking opportunities and web-based resources.  Members were particularly interested in hearing from invited guest speakers on vocational education and training (VET) topics and issues, as they arose in the sector.

Since March 2009 the trainer and assessor’s network has been formally auspised by the Greater Northern Skills Development Group Inc.


Any individual trainer/ assessor can become a member of the Trainer and Assessor Network. 

Any person who is a member of the GNSDG Inc. is automatically made a member of the Trainer and Assessor Network.

If you work in the public or private sector, an enterprise, and community sector registered training organisation, school, or university, you are encouraged to apply and be part of the Trainer and Assessor Network, and attend local workshops.
