Review of Queensland Education and Training SectorTweet
The Queensland State Government has agreed to a review of post-secondary education and training courses in Queensland. It is hoped that this will bring the state into line for the next cycle of economic growth and meet student and industry demand.
The Minister for Education and Training Geoff Wilson said that this review is necessary and timely given the ongoing national reforms to vocational education and training and higher education. It is critical that the training and education system is able to fully respond to the learning and skilling needs of industry and individuals. In essence what this means for the student is that they will be better equipped for future job roles and possess all necessary skills and attributes as required by industry.
Consultants, researchers and industry representatives will form this independent review panel to provide advice to the Queensland Government on the best ways to achieve results. TAFE institutes, universities, private training organisations, unions and relevant agencies will all be consulted to steer the Government in the right direction. It is important for Queensland to keep up with the rest of the training and educational reforms in Australia and ensure the best possible training outcomes for students.
