More questions in VET

If you understand training qualifications the feds want to hear about it

According to the Commonwealth there’s “an immediate priority” for “simplifying, streamlining and rationalising national VET qualifications across industry groupings and the Australian Qualifications Framework.” Just like there has been for 30 years.

But now there’s a survey on what needs be done – and halfway through there is actually a question about the “proposed qualification architecture” (which in the detail provided is more a back of the envelope sketch). The survey asks where “challenges” will come from, followed by questions about “occupational” and “training standards” and possible problems in implementing them.

And so it endlessly goes.
