A Smart and Skilled Christmas present

Monday, December 22 2014

NSW Education Minister Adrian Piccoli has announced that the NSW government will invest an additional $57 million to provide training for at least 16,000 more students in 2015. ACPET congratulates the government on this decision.

Funds will be allocated to increase small regional caps for entitlement, foundation skills and targeted priorities so that providers will have a minimum of around 12 training places in a region. These offers will be made before Christmas.

The government will also increase the allocation available for targeted priority full qualifications which will support existing providers as well as enable some additional contracts to be offered. These offers are likely to be made in January 2015.

Mr Piccoli has indicated an intention to purchase part qualifications in the first half of 2015.

We invite you to view the Minister’s media release, as well as ACPET’s media response.
