Latest Post from the VET Reform Taskforce

A post from the VET Reform Taskforce

On 25 June 2014, Minister for Industry, the Hon. Ian Macfarlane MP released new draft provider and regulator standards for consultation. 

The new draft standards address one of the three priority actions agreed by Australian, state and territory skills ministers at the COAG Industry and Skills Council meeting on 3 April 2014, to re-examine the draft training provider and regulator standards produced by the former office of the National Skills Standards Council (NSSC).

The new draft standards take into account a range of stakeholder views including issues raised during the broader VET reform consultation process undertaken in early 2014. The new draft standards are available here.

The Department of Industry welcomes comments on the new draft standards via email to until 23 July 2014. In addition, a series of webinars is planned in July. 

The first webinar will be an information session on 3 July 2014. This will be followed by two interactive webinars where you can ask questions and provide feedback on 15 and 16 July. Details on how to register is available here.

Minister Macfarlane released the new draft standards during his keynote address to the National Skills Summit, hosted by the Australian Council for Private Education and Training and the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.  More information about the Minister’s keynote address is available on the VET reform website.
