Peter NoonanOne of Australia’s leading experts on education and training policy, Peter Noonan, has taken up a new policy leadership role as a Mitchell Institute Fellow and advisor to the Vice Chancellor of Victoria University, Melbourne.

Noonan has over 25 years’ experience working as a policy adviser, senior executive and consultant to federal and state governments, universities, higher education providers, TAFE institutes and training systems and was a member of the  Expert Panel for the Review of Australian Higher Education (Bradley Review) in 2008.

Noonan will lead the Mitchell Institute’s work on policy challenges and options that support the creation of tertiary education pathways for young people to succeed in the labour market. He will also work closely with Vice Chancellor Professor Peter Dawkins as a strategic adviser to Victoria University, who says the three‐year appointment is timely given the imminent release of the federal government’s review into the demand‐driven system in higher education.

 Growth, participation and quality in Australia’s higher education are vital, so the outcomes of the Kemp‐Norton review are highly anticipated.  Peter Noonan’s work will complement the review by looking at the confusing and contradictory policy settings and financial arrangements governing the many state‐based vocational education and training sectors and identifying new models that improve quality and reduce costs through better integration across states and with the higher education sector.

He has been appointed a Professor of Tertiary Education Policy at Victoria University and is also an Honorary Senior Fellow at the Graduate School of Education at The University of Melbourne.
