Glossary term: Flexible Learning Advisory Group

Acronym: FLAG

An advisory group of the National Senior Officials Committee (NSOC) which had oversight of the National VET E-learning Strategy 2012-2015. It was established in 1996 as the key policy advisory group on national issues related to the directions and priorities for the application of information and communication technology (ICT) in the vocational education and training (VET) system and adult and community education (ACE).

Initially called the Education Network Australia Vocational Education and Training Advisory Group (EdNA VET Advisory Group or EVAG), its name was changed to Flexible Learning Advisory Group (FLAG) in 2001 to better reflect the overall directions of the advisory group. FLAG was dissolved in April 2014 by the newly established COAG Industry and Skills Council (CISC) as part of efforts to streamline the governance arrangements of the national training system.
