Emerging Technology Trials

Since 2008, the E-standards for Training business activity, through the national training system’s e-learning strategy, the Australian Flexible Learning Framework (Framework), has made funding available to registered training organisations (RTOs) for the trialling of emerging technologies.

The purpose of this annual funding opportunity is to explore emerging technologies and identify areas where future standards work may be required. The trials are also an important tool for identifying ways that the emerging technologies may be utilised in teaching and learning in the wider national training system.

The importance of this work is recognised, and continues under the National VET E-learning Strategy (the Strategy ) with added focus on learning outcomes.

As a result of enquiries received during the application periods, we've compiled a list of funding FAQs.
