Martin Cass

National Chair,
Australian Council for Private
Education and Training

Welcome members and friends. We are excited to announce the overarching theme for this year's Australian Council for Private Education and Training's (ACPET) Asia Pacific International Education Forum (APIEF) and National Conference is Inspiring Ideas; building a better private education and training sector through innovation, diversity and quality.

We are delighted to be returning to Melbourne for our Conference this year, which will be held at the Pullman Hotel overlooking picturesque Albert Park. An impressive line-up of speakers and exhibitors from both global and domestic tertiary education markets will facilitate the exploration of ideas, benchmarks and current practices relating to our theme.

Arguably the education sector has never before been in the midst of such concurrent change, scrutiny, threat and opportunity. ACPET's intention is to confront the debate through the high calibre of speakers and panel discussions at the Conference. We will seek to challenge the myths and realities of Tertiary Education. It is only through your participation and involvement that many of these discussion points can be further developed and explored.

In response to member requests there will also be a stream focused on English Language education.

Needless to say the opportunities for thought provoking discussion, collaboration and networking with peers at this time is vital.

I hope to see you there!
