VMFA 2017 Annual General Meeting 30th Aug Caulfield
In early 2017 the Victorian Government introduced its new approach to the training and TAFE system, Skills First, with its objective to ensure real training for real jobs.
An initial allocation of $40 million for workforce training innovation is available to industry and training provider partnerships to improve the quality and relevance of training to industry.
This will assist industry or business to develop and deploy new skills required for productivity improvement.
Grant funding is available across four interrelated categories:
- Future growth sectors
- Workforce training and skills development
- New training programs and methods
- Applied research.
The VMFA committee intends contacting Skills First for assistance in meeting some of the issues the industry currently faces including:
- Modernisation of apprenticeship course content
- Potential restructure of course duration and timing
- Addressing quality of education
- Pre-apprentice education options
- RPL options
