Overview

Stimulating improved skills levels for the Australian workforce

Investment in the National Vocational Education and Training E-learning Strategy for 2012-2015 will stimulate innovative approaches to increasing participation in training and improve the skill levels of the Australian workforce.

Funding of $11.5m has been approved for the Strategy in 2011/12 by the Ministerial Council on Tertiary Education and Training for programs:
  • capitalising on the roll-out of the National Broadband Network by demonstrating the benefits of the national investment in broadband
  • supporting large-scale workforce development in industry through partnerships and comprehensive e-learning advice
  • expanding participation and access for individuals through e-learning programs delivering foundation skills and e-literacy.
The National VET E-learning Strategy (which replaces the Australian Flexible Learning Framework) will seek co-investment to promote the growth in broadband-based training; support the adoption of industry-wide e-learning programs; develop e-literacy; and improve access to training.


Session Overview

Join us to hear about the funding opportunites and call for applications by the following Busniess Activities:

  1. National Broadband Network (NBN) E-learning Programs - focus on the delivery of training programs using broadband-based information technology to improve training access and outcomes for learners.
