​In partnership with State and Territory Governments, the Australian Government is seeking views on the delivery of Vocational Education and Training (VET) to secondary students to inform the development of a National VET for Secondary Students Strategy. Having your say will provide valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities to improve VET delivered to secondary students and help set policy directions for the National Strategy.

Industry Roundtables

The Australian Government are hosting a series of virtual Industry Roundtables to gain industry and employer views on the delivery and value of VET for Secondary Students. The Industry Roundtables will be facilitated by The Social Deck and insights gained from the workshops will inform the development of the National VET for Secondary Students Strategy. Please visit the Skills Reform Hub at VET for Secondary Students Reforms – Skills Reform to find out more and register for one of the Industry Roundtables sessions.

The Wholesale, Retail, Transport and Logistics roundtables will take place on Monday 28 February or Monday 7 March 2022. Click here to register.

Online Feedback Forms

In conjunction with the Industry Roundtables, online feedback forms are also available for you to provide your thoughts on how to improve the quality and industry relevance of VET delivered to secondary students in the context of the development of a National Strategy. You can complete the feedback forms regardless of whether or not you are attending the Industry Roundtables. The following feedback forms are available:

  1. Industry Feedback Form – for completion by industry representatives and employers
  2. Other Stakeholders Feedback Form – for completion by any stakeholders with an interest in VET for secondary students including schools and training providers.
