The VET system will be focused on quality teaching and learning under a revised National agreement on skills signed at COAG on the 13th April 2012.
The key targets of the National Agreement are to:
- Halve the proportion of Australians nationally aged 20-64 without qualifications at certificate level III and above between 2009 and 2020; and
- Double the number of higher level qualification completions (diploma and advanced diploma) nationally between 2009 and 2020.
