Submission to Skills for Victoria’s Growing Economy Review
National Disability Services (NDS) welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Macklin Review of Skills for Victoria’s Growing Economy. The disability sector is growing rapidly, and is reliant on the state’s post-secondary education and training system to produce workers with appropriate skills and knowledge to enable them to provide quality services to people with disabilities.
The Issues Paper provides a broad outline of some of the challenges facing the VET system, and acknowledges the perspectives of the varying stakeholders in the system. It is pleasing to see recognition of the disability sector and its rapid workforce growth within the paper.
