Submissions due Friday 20 December 2019.

The Productivity Commission has been requested to review the National Agreement for Skills and Workforce Development (NAWSD). Read the media release here.

The NASWD provides financial support to the States and Territories to support vocational education and training (VET) and outlines agreed goals and targets in the areas of skills and workforce development.

The Productivity Commission will review the effectiveness of the NASWD and will assess options for co-ordinated government support for VET, opportunities to increase VET participation and the potential to achieve further targeted reforms.
