Victorian reforms


Part of the reforms for Victorian VET announced today (see http://www.steveherbertmp.com.au/media-releases/skills-first-real-training-for-real-jobs/)  include a fund that explicitly acknowledges applied research:

the new Workforce Training Innovation Fund will provide funding for new training programs and products, projects or initiatives. This will include specialised curriculum development and applied research that develops new skills where there are identified gaps for new, emerging and priority sectors. The fund will support strong partnerships between industry, TAFEs, dual sector universities and high quality training providers

  1. Great to read the turn around in funding and policy support to rebuild credibility and recovery for the Victorian TAFE system. It is interesting to see that there are some signs of positive changes emerging in Queensland and UK Further Education Systems. NSW has some planning changes but still too early to tell about the merits of the reviews with talk about One TAFE for NSW.
