Victoria’s TAFE Network; training providers; adult, community and further education sector; and higher education institutions have a critical role to play in delivering Victoria’s skills roadmap.

Key statistics from the Victorian Skills Plan for 2023 into 2024

  • 352,000 new workers expected to enter the Victorian economy between 2023 and 2026
  • 64% of new workers will need higher-order skills.

The Skills Plan recognises the need for Victoria’s post-secondary system to further improve vocational education and training (VET) graduate outcomes, meet the aspirations of learners, lift participation in education and training, and deliver higher-order and transferable skills.

Engaging with learners to meet their motivations and aspirations through an inclusive VET system

  • Providing a stronger voice into education and training reforms
  • Understanding learner needs and aspirations to identify opportunities to improve post-secondary education
  • Working with the Department of Education to enhance connections of school-aged learners with industry
  • Gaining a better understanding of the VET journey of different learner cohorts and their outcomes.

Pursuing VET qualification redesign

  • Streamlining learning pathways through skills ministers’ work on VET qualification redesign
  • Trialling new approaches to designing VET qualifications through local accreditation.

Lifting participation in education and training

  • Empowering self-determination of First Nations peoples in VET
  • Reviewing the supports available for learners with disability to identify improvements.

Exploring future skills needs

  • Continuing to lead work on Victoria’s future skills needs.

Delivering an integrated post-secondary system

For Victorian TAFE Network providers, this involves:

  • streamlining qualification development
  • reducing regulatory burden
  • advocating for access to Commonwealth higher education funding
  • creating partnerships with universities that recognise the unique value of VET.

Embedding applied research in VET

  • Developing approaches to embed applied research in the education and training delivered by Victorian TAFE Network providers
  • Considering using the Workforce Training and Innovation Fund to prioritise applied research projects.
