In recent years the Victorian VET funding system has undergone significant upheaval. Rapid and repeated changes to funding settings have undermined the stability of the system. The government TAFE sector has been particularly impacted, resulting in serious concerns about TAFE institutes’ ability to meet the needs of industry and their communities.
An independent review of VET funding will provide the advice the Government needs to craft a more stable funding system and ensure its investment in training aligns with the goals of the Government’s Back to Work plan.
In Victoria, this means growing job and training opportunities not just now but for decades to come across a diverse range of industries. Key growth areas have been identified where Victoria can build on existing strengths – in the service industries (professional services, and social and personal services) and medical technology and pharmaceuticals, new energy technology, food and fibre, transport, defence and construction technology, and international education.
Community consultation sessions will be arranged with stakeholders including: public and private providers, community providers, parents, students, community members and other interested parties.
Consultation sessions will be held in metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas across Victoria.
