Achieving more together: Collective impact and collaboration
If Victoria is to thrive in a rapidly changing world, it needs to draw on the strengths of everyone who contributes to the training and skills sector.
Prior to the VSA, there was no systemic way to bring together industry, providers and other stakeholders with a shared commitment to meeting skills needs.
Around half of all new jobs needed by 2025 will be filled by learners coming through higher education and, potentially, higher-level vocational education.
So collaboration across the state’s education community is vital to economic and social success.
A collective approach – where the sector buys into the behaviour change required – will be more effective than individual attempts at change.
The skills sector needs to come together across schools, Learn Locals, TAFE and training providers and universities to map career pathways, provide adaptable skills development opportunities and clear, flexible entry points for all learners.
Working together, connecting locally, delivering new approaches and acting with integrity is the key to success in building a world-class approach to skilling.
