In 2019, COAG agreed a vision for vocational education and training (VET) to position the sector as responsive, dynamic and trusted. The review of the VET sector and the National Regulator is the biggest change in the training industry since 2011, when the Australian Skills Quality Authority took over as the National Regulator.
Skills Council articulated three priority areas in September 2019 to inform the delivery of the VET Reform Roadmap and improve the VET system:
- Relevance: ensuring VET is relevant and responsive to the job market, employers, industry and learners.
- Quality: supporting public confidence in the quality and value of VET for learners throughout their lives and moving it to parity with the higher education system.
- Accessibility: ensuring that all prospective learners and employers can access suitable information and training when and where it is required, including a specific focus on supporting access for disadvantaged Australians.
