The National Training Register Enhancement Project is building a modern, transparent, and easy-to-use platform to support Australia’s vocational education and training sector now and into the future.
The National Training Register (NTR)
The NTR Enhancement Project includes 4 key components:

The need for change
The Australian Government is committed to delivering a collaborative VET sector, bringing employers, unions and governments together to find solutions to skills and workforce challenges. This includes a strengthened training system and ensures that the national register remains the VET sector’s source of truth.
All Skills Ministers have agreed to new industry engagement arrangements that place industry and learners at the centre of the VET system. These arrangements seek to ensure that training product development is more timely, less bureaucratic, and less complex while still delivering national and local skills needs.
The NTR Enhancement Project is building systems and processes to help bring these arrangements to life.
How we are engaging with stakeholders
Our engagement approach will create timely and effective opportunities to enable the VET sector to understand what we are delivering and provide feedback to support a smooth and effective transition. These opportunities include VET sector conferences, demo and feedback sessions, training, and user testing.
The NTR Enhancement Project is being delivered over the next few years, with final completion expected in mid-2025.
