We have made a submission on the Education (Vocational Education and Training Reform) Amendment Bill. Our submission reflects the set of ‘non-negotiable’ characteristics of good quality VET developed through consultation with industry earlier this year, which have guided our approach to the reforms.
As an industry-owned body, our approach to the reforms (including this submission) is based on what is best for our industry. Our role is to advocate for a system that supports a sustainable supply of high-quality skills in the building and construction industry, and the foundation of this is a VET system that reflects the industries it serves; both the Bill and the overall RoVE programme should be understood in these terms.
As free trades training starts, being an apprentice and training in trades have become so much more attractive.
