Are there too many underutilised qualifications in the Australian VET system? Are some qualifications past their expiration date?
One method of reducing qualifications involves grouping them into vocational clusters so individuals can train for several jobs at once. This approach also creates greater transferability of skills in the labour market.
Do we have the appetite for such transformative change? Is there a role for good quality training that may sit outside the formal national training system?
Steve Davis talks to Professor John Buchanan, Business School, University of Sydney, David Morgan, CEO, Artibus Innovation and Simon Walker, Managing Director, NCVER about the notion of ‘clustering’ qualifications into vocational streams for a range of occupations and how it could be achieved.
