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 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 by 20 March 2020.
