National agreement for skills and workforce development review: Productivity commission interim report – Overview

In the context of the VET system, the review will consider specifically: (1) achievement of the objectives, outcomes, performance indicators, targets, reform directions and roles and responsibilities set out in the NASWD and their ongoing suitability; (2) options for governments to coordinate and streamline their support for vocational education in the future; (3) options for nationally consistent government funding and pricing arrangements that maximise efficiency, transparency and the supply of trained workers for the economy and promote consistency of incentives; (4) options to promote consistency in funding and loan arrangements between the VET and higher education sectors, and on any cross sector impacts that there might be; (5) options to ensure government investment in VET encourages increased participation in training by all Australians and is commensurate with the outcomes and benefits derived by individuals, business, industry, the local and national economy and society more generally; (6) potential for future funding arrangements to achieve further targeted reforms, including extending Language, Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Literacy (LLND) programs to all Australians and other relevant recommendations from the Expert Review of Australia’s Vocational Educational and Training System (the Joyce review); and (7) options for improved performance indicators, data and information sharing arrangements to enable all governments to assess the effectiveness of VET investment and delivery.
