The Commonwealth, in collaboration with states and territories, has launched skillsreform.gov.au, the new engagement hub for Skills Reform activities aimed at improving Australia’s VET system.

Consultations will occur through the engagement hub via discussion papers, surveys and online workshops. Feedback provided will be considered by Skills Ministers and inform decisions on future arrangements. You are invited to share your needs and expectations of the national training system and how you would like a future VET system to work.

Current consultations include:
