T he ACT Government is committed to increasing the skills of the ACT community. The ACT Government wants to ensure all Canberrans have the opportunity to train and work to their maximum potential through a vibrant, accessible and flexible training sector.

Under the National Partnership Agreement on Skills Reform, the ACT Government is undertaking a range of reform activities to deliver a more highly skilled workforce for the ACT.

The ACT Government has defined the key skills and training policy directions for the Territory. These key directions align with national priorities and focus on:

  • Strengthening engagement with industry, business and other stakeholders to maximise training outcomes.
  • Targeting government funding to support training in areas of highest needs to best provide the skills needed by industry, students and the ACT community.
  • Ensuring training delivered in the ACT is of the highest quality.
  • Providing better access to training with additional supports to promote completions, particularly for those experiencing disadvantage.

Further information about the ACT Government’s policy directions for skills and training is available in the ACT Skills and Training Policy Directions Paper.
