Abstract

This paper considers current government policy, industry trends and needs, and a range of stakeholder views related to the roles played by Vocational Education and Training in Australia’s post COVID-19 pandemic economic recovery. The discussion addresses opportunities for training providers to position themselves to maximise their returns and their contribution to economic recovery. Training and labour market cycles are considered from the perspective of the Cobweb Model and contextualised to post pandemic recovery. Recommendations are made around the training delivery approaches and strategies that can be applied including innovative industry based approaches such as paid internships, mentoring, and community service and delivery methods such as online qualifications, business certifications, and micro-credentials over a range of products including combined certificates and short courses.
