Why Private RTOs like Lumify Learn are the Top Choice for Employers

By Lumify Learn Team  |  December 22, 2023

As the digital revolution transforms the working world, employers are looking for skilled and qualified professionals who can keep up with the latest trends and technologies. To take advantage of this opportunity, it's important to take a course with registered training organisations (RTOs). RTOs are organisations that provide vocational education and training (VET) to students, teaching them practical skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their chosen industry.

When choosing an RTO, you mainly have two options: public and private/independent RTOs. The former, comprises government-funded institutes, while the latter consists of privately-run businesses that offer a range of accredited and non-accredited courses.

While both public and private RTOs have their own advantages and disadvantages, a new report has found that employers actually prefer independent RTOs.

How Do Private RTOs Deliver Better Skills Training Than Public Ones?

Based on the data released last November 2023 by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER), employers are more satisfied with the nationally recognised training provided by private RTOs than by public ones. According to their employer survey, private RTOs are better than public ones when it comes to the following aspects:

  • Relevance of taught skills

  • Condition of equipment and facilities

  • Cost-effectiveness of the training

  • Flexibility of the provider in meeting your needs

  • Trainer’s knowledge and experience of the industry

  • Standard of assessment

  • Overall satisfaction with the training

This shows that private RTOs are more responsive to the needs and expectations of employers and deliver higher quality training outcomes than public ones.
