The provincial government is inviting input from current students and graduates of private training institutions on the Private Training Institutions Act and Regulations.
A series of public sessions are scheduled for July.
Education Minister Darin King said there is a need to ensure the legislation is current, relevant and effective. In addition to consultations with students and graduates, consultations are occurring through meetings with other stakeholders including private training institutions, funding agencies and professionals licensing bodies.
"We want to ensure that the legislation for the private college sector allows for progress in the industry, while supporting quality programs and an appropriate level of protection for students' investments," King said. "Our government is taking this proactive step in reviewing the legislation to ensure it meets these needs."
As the review relies on the input of those who have experience with private training institutions, four consultation sessions will be held in regions of the province where private training institutions currently exist. The schedule is as follows:
St. John's (Capital Hotel): July 20, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.; Marystown (Marystown Hotel): July 21, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.; Grand Falls-Windsor (Mount Peyton Hotel): July 27, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.; Corner Brook (Greenwood Inn): July 28, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
