Skills for Queensland: Discussion paper
The Queensland Government released this discussion paper for public consultation. The discussion paper invited feedback from stakeholders to inform a new Queensland VET strategy. Stakeholder views were sought on key questions related to three themes: (1) meeting the need for skills through industry advice and market settings; (2) the role of providers in delivering VET services; and (3) encouraging all Queenslanders to participate in VET. Feedback from stakeholders will contribute to the development of a VET Strategy to build a Queensland VET sector that is flexible and responsive and provides pathways to job outcomes for students as well as delivering the skills employers need now and into the future., Public consultation and submissions in response to the discussion paper closed in October 2018. A total of 45 responses were received via the Get involved online survey and 43 written submissions were received from a range of stakeholders. There were 158 attendees at the seven regional consultation forums held at the following locations: Central Queensland, North Queensland, Brisbane Metropolitan, Darling Downs South West, North Coast, South East Queensland, and Far North Queensland.
