Real-life skills to ensure businesses have the workforce they need to grow

Scott Morrison has announced a shakeup of vocational education and training to ensure that more young people have real-life skills to match structural changes in the economy.

The prime minister made the announcement at the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s annual dinner on Wednesday, along with a promise to set up 10 new tax clinics to provide free advice to small businesses in tax disputes.

An independent review will be conducted by Steven Joyce, the former New Zealand minister for tertiary education, skills and employment, and an architect of significant reforms to the apprenticeship and industry training system.
