Specialises in consulting for RTOs, CRICOS and ELICOS providers.

Sally has been advising Australian vocational education and training (VET) providers for over 20 years.

Sally is passionate about helping training organisations get compliant and stay compliant. Since starting RTO Works (as J&S Learningwork in 2000), Sally has guided the development of Learning and Assessment resources and offered consulting services that have empowered hundreds in the VET industry to focus on achieving excellent outcomes for students.
