Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2022 Week 08 Hansard (Wednesday, 21 September 2022) . . Page.. 2780 ..

Phase 1 expression of interest (EOI) occurred between April 2018 and May 2018 and 27 proposals were received. 13 proposals were ‘without a site’ and one of the proposals nominated Block 45 Section 54, Belconnen as being a potentially suitable site. The Assessment Panel determined that the proposed development was appropriate for the site, and subsequent discussions have been restricted to the original applicant.

(2) The second stage evaluation is anticipated to be completed within the 2022/23 financial year.

(3) If the proponent is successful through the second stage of the Demonstration Housing process, the next steps will include a direct sale of the land as well as the pre-development application requirements, including design review and community consultation. A Territory Plan variation is not anticipated for this site if this progresses.

(4) The proposal is for an affordable build-to-rent housing development targeted at singles and couples in the lower end of the Quintile 2 income bracket. If successful through the second stage, more detail about the proposal will be provided on the Demonstration Housing website, during community consultation and through the Development Application process.

Canberra Institute of Technology—course delivery costs and number of graduates
(Question No 882)

Ms Lee asked the Minister for Skills, upon notice, on 5 August 2022:

In relation to the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT), for the period between 2016-2017 to 2021-2022 (inclusive), can the Minister advise (a) the number of graduations or course completions each year, by each course provided, (b) the number of participants in each of these courses per year and (c) the cost of delivery for each course delivered by CIT per annum.

Mr Steel: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

Table 1 at Attachment A shows the number of course completions each year by course. This does not include students undertaking a statement of attainment.

Enrolments and completions are not comparable within single years, as many take place over year-end boundaries.

Completion figures do not take into account students transitioning to other qualifications.

Students who ceased studying prior to qualification completion due to early achievement of their enrolment objectives (e.g. employment or promotion, or only enrolled to be trained in a specific skillset) are counted as non-completions.

Table 2 at Attachment A shows the number of participants in each course by year. This does not include students undertaking a statement of attainment.

CIT is unable to provide a meaningful answer to per-course costs, as CIT’s expenditure base is independent of individual course offerings. As an example, building costs remain
