Event overview

As Australia’s economy continues to readjust following the end of the resources boom, so too do the requirements of our future workforce.

CEDA’s previous research, Australia’s future workforce? outlined that 40 per cent of Australia’s current workforce could be replaced within the next 10–20 years. This level of disruption will also reshape institutions that educate, skill, and reskill our future workforce.

Not only is the Vocational Education and Training sector in Australia a fundamental part of our economy, it is also a crucial component of Australia’s education system and plays a vital role in securing the future skill needs of an agile, innovative, and diversified economy.

CEDA’s latest research report VET: securing skills for growth will examine:

  • Reskilling priorities for assisting Australia’s economic transition;
  • The role of VET within the broader education strategy of Australia;
  • The role VET plays in securing Australia’s future skills; and
  • What outcomes do we want from the VET system?
