Welcome from
Executive Director, Rob Thomason

This year marks VETASSESS’ 25th anniversary. We began in 1997 with five staff and contracts with Victorian and Federal Government agencies to conduct testing and exams.

By 1999, we had developed assessment expertise to the point where the Department of Immigration, as it was then known, engaged us to undertake skills assessment for migration.

We expanded internationally and into content design through our online arm eWorks, which complements our core business of assessment, educational consulting and curriculum design and development.

This year has started with an increase in applications for assessment for migration purposes and we expect this to continue as international borders open.

We continue to expand into non-migration assessment and micro-credentialling with our industry partners. This month, we launched a digital badge with the Customer Service Institute of Australia and partnered with the Australian Marketing Institute in the release of five micro-credentials.
