VET Review

On 28 November 2018, the Prime Minister announced an independent review of Australia’s vocational education and training (VET) sector to examine ways to deliver skilled workers for a stronger economy.

The Review focused on how the Australian Government can ensure millions of Australians have the skills they need to succeed in a changing labour market. It also focused on ensuring Australian businesses, including small and family businesses and businesses in rural and regional areas, have the skills they need to support their business growth.

The review was led by the Honourable Steven Joyce, a former New Zealand Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment. Mr Joyce delivered the final report to the Government in March 2019.

The Review sought information from interested parties through a public submissions process which closed on 25 January 2019.

Further information on the Review can be found on the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet website.
