Business owners, industry representatives, training providers and learners have the chance to shape the revamp of the state’s Training and Skills Development Act 2008, to ensure it provides an effective framework for future skills and workforce development.

David Pisoni, Minister for Innovation and Skills, says the feedback and ideas will help ensure the Act can be refreshed and updated to provide the best possible training system for South Australia.

“A modern training system requires an adaptive framework that streamlines operations and makes it easier for South Australian businesses to employ an apprentice or trainee,” he says.

The review of the state’s training legislation is part of broader training reforms underway, including through the $203 million Skilling South Australia program.

It is also in line with key recommendations in the Training and Skills Commission’s Skills for Future Jobs 2020 Series: Future-proofing the Apprenticeship and Traineeship System report, released last week.

“Extensive stakeholder consultation undertaken last year by the Training and Skills Commission revealed the desire for simpler and more responsive legislation, lower costs and less red tape,” Minister Pisoni says.

Feedback on the review of the Training and Skills Development Act 2008 is sought through the yourSAy website by Wednesday, June 19.

“I encourage anyone involved in employing, training, studying or accessing vocational education and training to join the conversation,” Minister Pisoni says.
