Reforming Australia’s vocational education and training regulator

October 02, 2020

Original Article:

A significant step has been taken to improve Australia’s vocational education and training (VET) sector with the passing of the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Amendment (Governance and Other Matters) Bill 2020.

This Bill will position the agency responsible for regulating the VET sector – the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) as an effective, modern regulator.

The Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, said these changes will help ensure regulation of the sector is more transparent and effective.

“Quality regulation is integral to ensuring that the training system is equipped to deliver high-quality student outcomes and to efficiently adapt to changing skill needs, labour market fluctuations and developing technologies.” Minister Cash said.

“The passing of this Bill is another critical step in the Government’s reform process to support ASQA’s continued evolution as a transparent and balanced regulator that engages effectively with stakeholders and builds quality in the VET sector.”
