User Choice Resourcing Arrangements in Australia in March 2004. Working Paper No. 57
Selby Smith, C.
Centre for the Economics of Education and Training, Monash University
As part of a charge to assist the Australian National Training Authority (ANTA) to co-ordinate the development of relevant User Choice resourcing arrangements, CEET documented existing User Choice resourcing arrangements in each jurisdiction as of March 31, 2004. Emails were sent to each jurisdiction asking them to provide information on the User Choice resourcing arrangements which were currently in operation, referring particularly to how priorities were determined, rather than to the dollar amounts provided. Information was also sought on any related matters which had a significant impact on the User Choice resourcing arrangements; and on any changes which were being implemented or proposed. Each State and Territory responded, some more extensively than others, and it was frequently suggested that further information be derived from the relevant authority website. Input from the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI), the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), and other employer organisations was also solicited. The report outlines existing priority determination processes and outcomes, organised by reference to each State and Territory, followed by the situation at national level, and by the situation as viewed from the perspective of employer and employee organisations. Two attachments are included: (1) Statement of User Choice Policy (MINCO; November 2003); and (2) ANTA Agreement for 2001 to 2004. (Contains 1 footnote.)
