Vocational education funding at lowest level in a decade, report says

Funding for the vocational education (VET) system has fallen to its lowest level in a decade amid a “piecemeal” and “ad hoc” approach to education spending, a new report has found.

The latest education expenditure report from Victoria University’s Mitchell Institute has criticised state and federal governments for setting the country up for an “uncertain future”.

The report, published on Wednesday, accuses policymakers of “refusing to look at education as a cohesive, integrated system”, and for allowing VET funding in particular to fall dramatically.
