Give feedback on VET

QUEENSLANDERS have been invited to have their say on how the state's Vocational Education and Training (VET) should change over the coming years.

Minister for Employment and Training, Shannon Fentiman, released a discussion paper on VET training on Tuesday, and is looking for suggestions on how the state government should shape a more modern, flexible, and adaptive skills system in Queensland.

"VET plays a vital role in delivering the training and skills needed to fill priority jobs across a wide range of occupations and trades.”

"It delivers real results for Queenslanders and has a proven track record with 85% of graduates getting a job or going onto further study.”

Ms Fentiman said that investment in training needs to consider fast growing industries and the occupations likely to develop in the future.

"We want Queenslanders to have their say on how we can ensure there are job-ready graduates in growth occupations, and ensure Queensland makes the most effective use of the state's VET investment.”

"We need to ensure the system is anticipating changes and growing where there is the greatest need for industry, workplaces and regions right across the state,” she said.

The Skills for Queensland discussion paper is open for feedback until Friday, October 19, and anyone can have their say by visiting the Skills for Queensland website.
