Changes to Smart and Skilled

In a recent Smart and Skilled policy decision (June 24th 2016) the Department of Industry is now making available apprenticeship only qualifications as full institution based qualifications.

Qualifications which were previously offered as an apprenticeship only can now also be delivered under Smart and Skilled as full qualification programs.

Attached is a copy of Smart and Skilled Update 26 that outlines this new offering.

With support of the Nursery Industry our ITAB has written to the Department outlining our concerns with this decision. Download a copy of the letter here. If you have any thoughts on this, please let us know.
