In response to: Department of Education and Training's 'Skills for Victoria' Issues Paper

Submitted: June 2020

Summary: Our submission puts forward several recommendations including:

  • Advocate federally for a shift to a new VET system adopting and adapting key features of successful European economies, including the expansion of apprenticeships or traineeships.
  • Develop an integrated VET structure that articulates the role of Learn Local providers as a complementary provider of accredited and pre-accredited training.
  • Reform the funding mechanism to ensure the actual cost of high-quality delivery is covered with consideration of learner need, market size and provider scale.
  • Incentivise and resource collaboration between Learn Local providers and TAFEs
