VET Reform Roadmap

In 2019, the Council Of Australian Governments (COAG) agreed a vision for vocational education and training (VET) to position the sector as responsive, dynamic and trusted.  To deliver on this vision, COAG tasked Skills Council with developing a VET Reform Roadmap (the Roadmap).

Skills officials have developed a consultation draft of the Roadmap. This draft is a working document of the Skills Senior Officials’ Network: it has not been reviewed or endorsed by governments or COAG.

For general enquiries about the Roadmap, please contact VETReformRoadmap@dese.gov.au. For more information about the VET Roadmap, please contact your local skills department: Department of Employment, Small Business and Training

 

Micro-credentials in the VET system

To support Roadmap development, Skills Ministers agreed to fast-track four pieces of work. The first piece explores using micro-credentials in the national VET system to better respond to student and job-need.

This work will deliver:

  • an agreed definition of micro-credentials in the VET sector
  • an operational framework for how micro-credentials work in the national VET system.

micro-credentials discussion paper has been prepared as the first part of the fast-tracked work on micro-credentials. Your input will help shape the definition of micro-credentials and what needs to change to support the operation of the definition in the VET sector.

Please provide input directly to tertiary.education.national.reform@edumail.vic.gov.au by 20 March 2020.
