Education and Training

POSITION STATEMENT

Improve the embedding of employability skills in the school curriculum, encourage and if necessary incentivise the states to introduce minimum requirements for literacy and numeracy to standards required in the workplace, using international benchmarks.

 

The ARA supports a review of the efficiency and effectiveness of the vocational training system currently being conducted. However, although there are specific issues within each part of the education and training system (early childhood, schools, vocational training, and higher education), it is important that there is greater clarity of roles between the Commonwealth and the states across the system not just within each component, and pathways and recognition of quality outcomes should be improved between the sectors so as to achieve efficiency of public funding spend.
