Budget shows commitment to training
Today’s Budget shows a firm commitment to the role of training in supporting the country’s economic and social development.
Maintaining increases to the Industry Training Fund is welcome at a time when we are well aware that the purse strings are being tightened, Industry Training Federation Executive Director Jeremy Baker said.
“It shows that the Government sees the value that industry training delivers and it signals that it has faith in the sector to deliver even more,” Mr Baker said.
“We hope that over the next few years, that will translate into significant policy changes to focus more the education system more on the needs of industry.
“I look forward to working with the government to advance some of these issues,” Mr Baker said.
