New focus for workplace participation commission

The Brumby Government has unveiled an improved Victorian Skills Commission as part of its training reform program.

Skills and Workforce Participation Minister Jacinta Allan said the Commission would oversee the $316 million reform of the TAFE and training system over the next three years.

Ms Allan said training would be funded according to demand and the system will be “more responsive than ever to the needs of workers and business”, with a strong industry focus.

“The broad cross-section of members is truly representative of the industry-focus needed to encourage more people into our skills training system,” she said.

Howard Ronaldson, Secretary of the Department of Innovation, Industry and Regional Development, has been appointed acting chair of the Victorian Skills Commission.
