Review Of The National Agreement For Skills And Workforce Development

This revision will complement the government`s implementation of the “Delivering Skills for Today and Tomorrow” package announced in the 2019-20 budget. The $585 million budget will ensure Australians have the right skills to get jobs and build careers, now and in the future, wherever they live. This study was commissioned as part of a series of reviews of national agreements concluded under the auspices of the Intergovernmental Agreement on the Financial Relations of the Federal State (COAG 2009). The National Accord for Skills and Labour Development (NASWD) was approved in 2009 by the Australian, Federal and Territorial Governments and updated in 2012. NASWD sets targets for the skills acquisition of Australians through the vocational training system and is committed to reforms to ensure the accessibility, provision and proper functioning of the system.

The Productivity Commission will assess the effectiveness of NASWD and assess the possibilities for coordinated public support for vocational training, the possibilities for increasing participation in vocational training and the potential for further targeted reforms. “The vocational training sector has been affected by COVID-19 and will also be part of the recovery strategy. A better vocational training sector will help people learn new skills and find jobs, which will ultimately increase productivity and wages,” said Commissioner Jonathan Coppel.
