The chorus has been growing for some time to build a more cohesive and connected tertiary system in Australia’s post-compulsory landscape. Indeed, it is the central theme of the book Rethinking Tertiary Education: Building on the work of Peter Noonan.

The final report of the Universities Accord picked up the issue, further advocating the need for a more seamless relationship between vocational and higher education, noting that 'pathways between vocational education and training and higher education are currently fragmented and misaligned, making navigation cross sectors very difficult'.

The divide between the sectors does not best serve the interests of individuals developing skills and moving through the labour market, nor employers seeking skills required for work now and into the future.

In this webinar our panelist discussed the opportunities, and the challenges to overcome, in creating a more connected tertiary education system.
