NSW ITABs ❤️ the RIEP

Everyone from NSW ITABs and everyone from the RIEP (Regional Industry Education Partnerships) went to Ballina in early February for a meet and greet, an exchange of ideas and to create a long list of Things To Do Together. Topping the list at the moment is the AEF's regional visits to showcase the Maths in Trades pathway to interested high schools. We warmly welcome the RIEP's help in spreading the VET word. The RIEP is an initiative of the NSW Department of Industry.
