Investing in vocational education and training

The vocational education and training sector provides skills-based training to assist individuals in finding employment or to help them advance within a current position. Under the Annual Vocational Education Training Investment Plan, the state government has committed $810.7 million to help individuals gain skills that lead to job opportunities and sustainable employment.

The plan is supported by a vocational education and training investment framework that aims to support demand-driven funding arrangements and support disadvantaged learners. It also aims to contribute towards public providers—enabling them to compete in the vocational education and training market.

TAFE Queensland is the state’s largest public provider of vocational education and training. It was established on 1 July 2013 as an independent statutory body under the TAFE Queensland Act 2013. There are other providers of vocational education and training, including universities.

The number of private training providers in the market has expanded, each offering skills-based training across accredited courses. The current vocational education and training model is intended to provide a greater variety of courses for individuals to choose from, while providing successful learning and employment outcomes for students.
