Reimagining Vocational Qualifications:
It could be contended that skills have never been so important, yet simultaneously our vocational education and training system seems poorly placed to respond to this need. Skill shortages loom large across the Australian economy. Seventy-five percent of employers already report being negatively impacted by skill shortages, most acutely within trades, technicians and paraprofessional occupations. And work continues to transform. By 2025, 27% of current jobs will disappear and 49% of jobs will be reshaped and require major reskilling efforts. By 2030, 22% of the workforce will be in a job not existing today.
