Belinda has been an educator since the late 1990’s. Originally an Accounting and Business teacher in High Schools where she also ‘played’ in the VET in schools arena with Certificate II in Business. She changed to teaching VET full time in 2006 when she joined one of the 25 newly formed Australian Technical Colleges set up by the federal Government at the time. Here Belinda’s passion for VET and understanding of competency based training grew and developed. Her love for learning resulted in gaining further VET qualifications and becoming the Quality Assurance Manager at the College.
Presently Belinda is the National Training Manager at a private RTO. Some of her favorite topics are compliance issues and the challenges that face VET professionals who want to become high quality trainers. She has joined the VETIG committee to stay connected and up to date with the fast changing VET industry and to give back to the VET community to help grow the culture of professionalism among trainers and assessors.
In her previous life Belinda was in the finance industry with roles in administration and accounting.
