Skills to meet demand
Reforms to the vocational education and training system in NSW are being made to ensure we have individuals gaining the skills that are in demand.
The Minister for Education Adrian Piccoli has announced the NSW Skills Board as the independent Board to lead the implementation of Smart and Skilled reforms, from July 2014.
"It will replace the NSW Board of Vocational Educational Education and Training and will provide stringent oversight of the Smart and Skilled reforms, including training outcomes, quality assurance and fiscal sustainability," Mr Piccoli said.
A skills list will define what courses will be subsidised by the NSW Government. It will be based on industry consultation and labour market research.
