ACPET Open letter for upcoming Victorian Election

Monday, November 24 2014

As part of the lead up to the Victorian State Election on 29 November 2014, the Victorian Minister for Higher Education and Skills and the Shadow Minister for Higher Education, Skills and Apprenticeships have responded to an open letter from ACPET CEO Rod Camm. The open letter, sent on behalf of Victorian members, reinforces the ACPET commitment to working with government and other key stakeholders to further improve Victoria’s VET sector. The letter sought the position of both parties on their plans for the state's training sector through four key questions:

  • What is your vision for the Victorian training system for the next four years?
  • Will both parties be maintaining the current $1.2 billion per annum funding for VTG direct training delivery?
  • Will any element of the VTG be quarantined for TAFE Community Service Obligations or will additional funding be provided?
  • What initiatives does your party have planned to safeguard the integrity of quality training providers and also reduce under-delivery of funded courses?

The open letter and responses are available below.
