Southern & South Western Regional Development Committee (SSWRDC)
About the Committee
The Southern & South Western Regional Development Committee (SSWRDC) had its beginnings over 50 years ago as the Canterbury-Bankstown Regional Apprenticeship Committee (CBRAC), one of the first in NSW. The Vocational Training Promotions Committee, South Western Sydney (VTPCSWS) was formed in 2001 to service the Fairfield, Liverpool, Camden and Campbelltown regions. In 2016, these two Committees were combined to form our current Committee, the Southern and South Western Sydney Vocational Training Committee (S&SWSVTC). In 2017 a new Committee was formed to bring a fresh approch to the regional training awards.
Today the SSWRDC consists of employer, government, education and Registered Training Organisation representatives with a common aim to promot apprenticeships and traineeships - enhancing the standard of vocational skills in the Southern & South Western region.
