ACCI Zoom Conference with the Hon Alan Tudge MP, Federal Minister for Education and Youth, Federal Member for Aston on The Future of Education

“The Doherty advice is clear as well, that you need to get to the vaccination targets. Also you still need to maintain your health systems there as well, and the contact tracing, and the like. That’s the expectation that we all have, and that states and territories, with the Prime Minister, have signed up to.” said Alan Tudge the Federal Minister for Education and Youth.

“The plan is clear that once we get to those 70 to 80 per cent vaccination rates, then society becomes open again. That’s the deal we’ve made with the Australian people, and that’s what we’re moving towards, and we’re getting there very rapidly. We have to get there, we have to open up our society. Schools need to be open, not just so that that learning can occur, but for the social and emotional wellbeing, for the connections. We want to get kids back playing sport, doing the normal activities which they have, which is so important for their personal development.”

The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry held a zoom conference with the Hon Alan Tudge MP, Federal Minister for Education and Youth, Federal Member for Aston in Victoria.

As the world changes rapidly, so too must Australia’s education ecosystem to ensure that our students are ready for anything. The demand for skills is changing immensely due to disruption and technology, but is Australia’s education ecosystem suitably preparing students to thrive in this dynamic new world of work?

At this conference, the Minister spoke about the Federal Government’s policies and initiatives in his education portfolio including the future of education and the complexities and impacts of the COVID19 pandemic on the education system and Australia’s youth.

Following his address the Minister answered many questions from the attendees topics ranging from integrated learning opportunities, consistency in literacy & numeracy, the Quality Initial Teacher Education Review, funding model for non-government schools, national skills shortage, international students, micro credentials, work integrated learning, international education, independent higher education business support and venture markers that facilitate practical pathways to employment via internships and graduate programs.
