The Suburban Land Agency has demonstrated that it is committed to operating in a transparent, responsible manner in delivering on its responsibilities of managing land available for development and agreed acquisition of privately held leases.

In order to meet its responsibilities, the agency provides me with a report after the end of each quarter on any land acquired by the agency during that quarter, providing any valuations and any other information prescribed by regulation. The Suburban Land Agency has provided me with its quarterly land acquisitions for the period January to March 2018. During the reporting period, the agency did not make any acquisitions. I commend the report to the Assembly.

Canberra Institute of Technology—annual report 2017

Paper and statement by minister

MR GENTLEMAN (Brindabella—Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for the Environment and Heritage, Minister for Planning and Land Management and Minister for Urban Renewal) (3.27): On behalf of Minister Fitzharris, I present the following paper:

Annual Reports (Government Agencies) Act, pursuant to section 13—Annual report 2017Canberra Institute of Technology, dated 6 April 2018.

I seek leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MR GENTLEMAN: Today I am tabling the Canberra Institute of Technology's annual report for 2017. As the report details, CIT has experienced a year of outstanding achievement and transformation. In 2017, CIT surpassed its performance targets and shone on the national stage.

CIT annual surveys showed a high level of student and employer satisfaction. Ninety-one per cent of students surveyed said they were satisfied with their experience at CIT; that was six per cent above its 2017 target. Employer satisfaction levels exceeded CIT's expectations by seven per cent, with 87 per cent saying they were satisfied with their experience working with CIT.

A major achievement in 2017 was the Australian Skills Quality Authority's re-registration of CIT for the maximum period of seven years. The authority found CIT to be fully compliant against all audited standards, without rectification. This is a rare achievement for a publicly funded registered training organisation, and it highlights the quality of CIT's teaching and training.

CIT being selected as a national finalist in the 2017 Australian training awards for the Australian large training provider of the year also demonstrated the high regard in which CIT is held. This followed CIT's selection for the 2017 ACT large training provider of the year award.
