Skills Reform Consultations

To support the future growth and prosperity of our nation, the Australian Commonwealth, State and Territory governments are committed to improving the vocational education and training (VET) system through Skills Reform.

We’re building better qualifications, supporting Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) to deliver high-quality training, and improving industry and employer engagement in Australia’s VET sector.

Have your say to help shape the future of Australia’s VET system.

Be part of the Skills Reform and have your say on immediate reforms to:

  • strengthen the role of industry and employers in the VET system
  • improve VET qualifications
  • support high-quality training delivery

We want to hear from anyone with an interest in the VET system. This includes those who have undertaken VET training, employers and business owners, RTOs, trainers and assessors and organisations who support the VET sector and its industries.

There are different ways to get involved - attend an online consultation event, complete a survey or send a submission.

Changes to the VET system are required so that Australians can access high quality and relevant training, ensuring they have the skills to take on the jobs that emerge through the next decade and beyond.

We want to hear from you about reforms to the VET system. During the consultation periods, there will be a range of ways you can provide input to help shape the reforms.

Background

Australia’s VET system drives the skilled workforce which supports our economy. You can visit the Skills Reform page on the Department of Education, Skills and Employment website for more information. The Commonwealth and all state and territory governments have signed the Heads of Agreement for Skills Reform which sets out national reforms for the VET sector. The priorities in the agreement are aimed at ensuring the VET system is delivering for students and employers and equipping Australians with the skills they need for emerging jobs.

This consultation process is a recognition of the need for a truly national approach to Skills Reform. This will continue the work undertaken through reviews and consultations over the past 18 months, to further refine the best approach for Australia’s VET system.
