This report has been prepared for the National Training Reform Taskforce to report on the future supply of, and requirements for, vocational education and training (VET) qualifications in Australia. It is intended to inform the next stages of reform of the sector to be considered by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG). The report provides: (1) A projection of the qualifications profile of people in employment in Australia in 2016; (2) Estimates of the additional number of qualified people required in the next ten years to attain the 2016 qualifications profile of employed people; (3) Estimates of the supply of people with VET qualifications from 2006 to 2016; (4) Estimates of the gap between supply and requirements in the number of people with VET qualifications from 2006 to 2016; and (5) Estimates of the additional student contact hours required to meet the shortfall in the number of people with VET qualifications from 2006 to 2016. Findings indicate that if the supply of people with VET qualifications remains at the same level as in 2005, a shortfall of 240,000 can be expected over the ten years to 2016. To meet the projected shortfall, net completions will need to increase by 1.9 per cent per year. Two appendices are include: (1) Labour Supply and Requirements in the Trades; and (2) Additional Tables. (Contains 46 footnotes, 2 figures and 60 tables.)
