National Partnership Agreement on Skills Reform

ACIL Allen Consulting was commissioned by the Australian Government to review the National Partnership Agreement on Skills Reform (NPASR). The Agreement set out the goals and structures of intergovernmental VET funding and reform for the period 2012-13 to 2016-17.

The review included nation-wide consultations with Commonwealth, state and territory officials from central agencies and departments of education and training. Representatives from public and private providers of training, industry groups and regulatory bodies were also consulted.

Data analysis for the review covered the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) Students and Courses collection, completion rates modelling and Student Outcomes Survey (SOS), in addition to analysis of VET FEE-HELP Statistical Reports, training.gov.au and selected data provided by the states and territories.

The review examined the conditions that support reform progress and set out recommended priorities for future reform of the training system.
