The Government recently announced its Delivering Skills for Today and Tomorrow package in response to the Expert Review into Australia’s VET Sector led by the Hon Steven Joyce. The Expert Review looked at a host of issues in a very short time and made 71 recommendations, many of which require cooperation of states. The review proposes a range of improvements for the VET sector, and any review that aims to improve the VET sector for industry and training providers is welcomed. The Expert Review supported the role of industry led Training Packages and more industry influence in traineeships/apprenticeships.
The Delivering Skills for Today and Tomorrow budget package outlines a number of reforms to the VET sector, some of which come from the Expert Review.
