The nature of partnerships between public and private registered training organisations (RTOs) and employers has changed over time, from a relationship primarily based on provision of particular services to one based on longer-term mutual collaborations. This good practice guide provides insights into developing and sustaining successful partnerships and identifies the potential benefits and challenges of these partnerships. It provides valuable information for both training providers and employers seeking to establish or strengthen a partnership arrangement.
