The Productivity Commission is reviewing the National Agreement for Skills and Workforce Development
Treasurer Josh Frydenberg released terms of reference Friday.
* “options for nationally consistent government funding and pricing arrangements
* “consistency in funding and loan arrangements between the VET and higher education sectors
* “potential for future funding arrangements to achieve further targeted reforms …and other relevant recommendations’ from the Joyce Review of VET.”
The Commission has a year to report, but Mr Frydenberg wants advice by March on; funding, national coordination and return on investment for VET spending
A couple of weeks back the Victoria Government appointed Jenny Macklin to review voced in the state (CMM November 4). At the time, it looked like a way to slow the feds rolling out the Joyce review recommendations. It still looks like that, plus a brake on whatever the PC proposes in March.
