The South Australian Government continues to strengthen the state’s vocational education and training (VET) sector.
Since the current Act commenced in 2008, the workforce development needs of the state, and the training and skills landscape has changed significantly.
Changes to industry structures, the nature of work and the tools and technologies used in the workplace are rapidly transforming how businesses operate.
South Australia’s training system needs to be flexible and responsive to the kinds of skills that are required and how training is accessed and delivered.
The review of the Training and Skills Development Act responds to key recommendations from the Training and Skills Commission’s Skills for Future Jobs 2020 Series: Future-proofing the Apprenticeship and Traineeship System report.
This report canvassed stakeholder views on how well the apprenticeships and traineeship system works and whether it meets contemporary needs.
A Consultation Outcomes Report has been prepared which outlines feedback received through the initial consultation period.
