VET Review

On 28 November 2018, the Prime Minister announced an independent review of Australia’s vocational education and training (VET) sector to examine ways to deliver skilled workers for a stronger economy. The review was led by the Honourable Steven Joyce, a former New Zealand Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment.

Mr Joyce delivered the final report to the Government in March 2019.

On 2 April 2019, Government released its Delivering Skills for Today and Tomorrow package which responds to recommendations of the review. More information about delivering a world class vocational education and training system is available.
