The Productivity Commission has sought to find out how well Federal, State and Territory Governments have achieved their goals for the Vocational Education and Training (VET) system as set out in the National Agreement for Skills and Workforce Development. The Commission will also look at the suitability of this agreement for the future.
The Commission has released a Skills and Workforce Development Agreement Issues paper which looks at how governments can better coordinate their support for VET, options for improving funding and pricing arrangements, and how to ensure that government investment in VET produces the best returns for industry.
You can access the Issues Paper by clicking here.
As a trainer of over 900 automotive apprentices, we welcomed this opportunity and will be making a submission on the importance of the VET system. This submission will highlight the value our Registered Training Organisation (RTO) provides, generating outcomes for industry.
Our submission will also highlight the challenges we are facing together with government and we welcome your feedback to be included in this.
If you train an apprentice through our RTO, click here to contact Industry and Government Engagement Manager, Kaes Cillessen, if you would like to provide feedback to be included in our submission.
Submissions are due by Friday 20 December 2019, so we encourage you to contact Kaes before then to ensure your voice is heard!
