Submission | Training Product Reform and Unduly Short Courses | March 2018
Submission to the Department of Education and Training – Response to discussion papers on Training Product Reform and Unduly Short Courses:
Training products and competency-based training are cornerstones of the Vocational Education and Training (VET) system. Industry places a high value on the focus on skills outcomes, as defined by industry specialists, as opposed to training inputs. Radical change is not required in relation to training products but further refinement particularly of the development of the products will significantly improve efficiency and responsiveness. Employers continue to see the strength of VET as the delivery of relevant technical skills suitable for modern workplaces.
