The Commonwealth and South Australian Governments have announced a partnership to radically reform the State’s vocational education and training system. The bilateral agreement is a joint commitment intended to ensure the VET sector meets the needs of individual students and the broader economy. The reforms will guarantee students over the age of 16 a government funded training place, provide support for the disadvantaged, make the system more transparent and improve quality and choice. For the first time in South Australia, government subsidised Diploma and Advanced Diploma students will have the opportunity to defer payment of their upfront fees through study-now-pay-later loans, similar to what is currently available for university students.
