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.
The Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation (BCITO) has set a record of 16,000 apprentices in training.
