Still no mention of shipbuilding college

It was business as usual for Christopher Pyne yesterday with the Defence Industry Minister spruiking spending and announcing investments. In particular, he talked-up the renewal of a STEM pathway programme in WA and SA for school students interested in defence industry careers. It will “help support the development of a skilled workforce for the delivery of the continuous naval shipbuilding program,” Mr Pyne said. Good-o, but on the subject of skills the minister is still silent on the naval building college, which was supposed to start this year.
