National VET Advisory Taskforces. Joint Communique to Stakeholders
Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations
Over 12 years ago, the Australian National Training Authority (ANTA) first established the ANTA Disability Forum and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Training Advisory Council (ATSIPTAC) to provide much-needed focus on creating opportunities for people with disabilities and Indigenous people to successfully participate in training leading to employment. The Disability Forum and ATSIPTAC produced Bridging Pathways and Partners in a Learning Culture, Australia's national strategies for disability and Indigenous reform in the training system that have been guiding the reform process ever since. Following Ministerial endorsement of the strategies, the ANTA Disability Forum and ATSIPTAC were replaced by the Australian Disability Training Advisory Council (ADTAC) and the Australian Indigenous Training Advisory Council (AITAC) which oversaw the implementation of the Strategies and provided advice and guidance at the Ministerial, bureaucratic and delivery levels. Each produced a mid-term review of the respective strategies that provided more practical focus on the reform process. Over the years, new arrangements were established to be the primary source of advice to governments regarding student needs in VET, and particularly for students with poorer VET participation and employment outcomes than the general student population. This is the joint communique of the National VET (Vocational Education and Training) Advisory Taskforces and Advisory Alliance. It is intended to inform stakeholders about what has been achieved since their formation, and to outline the new equity advisory arrangements that are currently being established in VET.
