Australia’s ten Industry Skills Councils (ISCs) and TAFE Directors Australia (TDA) have established a shared position on a number of ndamental issues critical to the skilling of Australia’s workforce.   TDA and the ISCs met recently in Hobart to explore issues facing the publicly funded training system, which would benefit from a common position and collective commitment to theirresolution.    In a special communiqué from the meeting, TAFE Institute CEOs and ISC chief executives released a set of ‘shared priorities’.  The purpose of the priorities is to guide vocational education policy makers -- across national, state and territory urisdictions. They cover issues for the publicly-funded Vocational Education and Training (VET) system to meet the participation and productivity goals of the current Council of Australian Governments (COAG) agenda and to respond to the specific needs of the current and future workforce.     These include: Establishment of a public funding model to enable real workforce development; Building practitioner skills and professional development; and Removing federal and state 'inconsistencies'. Martin Riordan, Chief Executive Officer of TDA, said, “Securing a shared position on some of the most undamentalissues facing our publicly-funded training sector is critical if it is going to meet the needs of industry and its current and future workforce.”  Arthur Blewitt, Chief Executive of the AgriFood ISC said, “The ISCs and TDA are both about ensuring our workforce is skilled to world class standards.  Although our roles are different the issues identified impact on us equally. Thus it is timely to have some frank discussion and get real movement on their resolution”. A copy of the Communiqué is attached.
