Macklin Issues Paper Released
SKILLS TO SUPPORT VICTORIA’S ECONOMY better known as The Macklin Review has released its issues paper into Victoria’s postsecondary education and training system and is calling for feedback from students, providers, industry and community groups.
The Skills for Victoria’s Growing Economy review, led by former Federal Minister Jenny Macklin, is focused on designing a system that meets the needs of industry, government and students now and in the future. The issues paper draws on the research and targeted consultations the review team has undertaken to date and outlines the critical issues for students, governments, industry and providers.
The issues paper underpins the public consultation process for the review and seeks feedback on issues ranging from course costs and quality, to the work-readiness of graduates and broader economic considerations, including the rapidly changing workforce.
The stakeholder consultation process will run from March until May, public submissions will close in June, and the Final Report is due to be presented to government in October.
Providers, industry, unions, students, community and researchers are invited to have their say about what they expect from postsecondary education through Engage Victoria, until 5 June.
