AEU submission: Skills for Victoria’s Growing Economy

AEU Victoria's submission to the Skills for Victoria’s Growing Economy Review (Macklin Review), submitted December 2020.


The Victorian Branch of the Australian Education Union (AEU) welcomes this opportunity to contribute to the Skills for Victoria’s Growing Economy Review (Macklin Review). 

The AEU is well placed to provide insights into the provision of Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Victoria, representing thousands of TAFE teachers and thousands more teachers and paraprofessionals in secondary schools delivering VET subjects. 

AEU members experience the daily realities of VET delivery in Victoria and offer a unique and valuable perspective on the policies and practices that work effectively and efficiently, or otherwise. 

To take full advantage of these perspectives, the AEU has surveyed its members in relevant positions to ensure that their voices directly inform the recommendations contained in this submission.
