Our five-year strategic roadmap, AliVE @ RMIT, purposefully guides everything we do in vocational education to deliver our vision: to position RMIT as a leading multi-sector provider with global impact and influence.

    Led by our Deputy Vice Chancellor, the College of VE is reimagining how we deliver vocational education to create unique experiences for our students and partners, so we can:

    • engage industry and community at scale

    • grow for impact and influence

    The College of VE is delivering impact through transformation that creates long-term change.

    Our planning and resources function puts the student at the centre of our thinking through a precinct-based approach that delivers the right support where it is needed most. This enables us to deliver a consistent student and staff experience with differentiation between whole of college services and bespoke units or functions.
