Skills for All AustraliansSkills for all Australians



About this Publication

This document outlines the Commonwealth Government’s plan to reform skills training in Australia – to help Australians get jobs, or learn new skills so they can get better jobs; to build more competitive businesses; and to build a stronger economy with a fair share for all Australians. Jobs are the Government’s top priority, and skills training is all about jobs. Australia’s most important resource is its people. Their capacity to contribute to society, especially through the paid workforce, is one of the strongest measures of a nation’s productivity. Today 4.1 million Australians in the labour force do not hold the qualifications needed for entry to the growth sectors of our economy.
