Industry calls for single national regulator for VET 22 October, 2009
| Media Release The Australian Council of Trade Unions, the Australian
Industry Group, and the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry
today called on Training Ministers in all States and Territories to
proceed, as a priority, with the establishment of a national regulator
for the Australian Vocational Education and Training (VET) system as
agreed at the April 2009 COAG meeting. The case for the establishment
of a national regulator is clear and compelling, the three
organisations said. http://www.actu.asn.au/Media/Mediare...torforVET.aspx

City to top 7m people MELBOURNE'S population will grow to almost 7
million by 2049, federal Treasury has projected, doubling in the space
of 50 years as an unending mining boom brings more and more migrants
into Australia. But revealing the figure yesterday, Treasury
secretary Ken Henry voiced fears that Australia might be unable to
handle another 13 million people by 2049 without serious environmental

Rules skew student choice. THERE is frequent criticism in the media
about education agents and about students seeking permanent residence
via the study-immigration route. Demographers have theories, trade
unions have political positions and newspapers publish half-
informative, half-inflammatory articles. This gets us nowhere; we need
people for the coming economic boom.

THE international education industry faces upheaval as tighter
immigration policies prompt students to switch from down-market
courses in oversubscribed areas such as business and commerce, towards
more substantive university degree courses. Students seeking
migration are expected increasingly to seek longer degree courses in
areas tied to the government's critical skills list or linked to
employer sponsorship, according to migration expert Lesleyanne
Hawthorne, who is also the University of Melbourne's associate dean
international. http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au...-12332,00.html

Education Services for Overseas Students Amendment (Re-registration of
Providers and Other Measures) Bill 2009. Australia’s international
education industry has come under intense national and international
media scrutiny due to recent protests in Australia by Indian students
following number of violent assaults. At the same time there were
media images of international students being locked out following the
closure of a number of colleges and exposure by the media of some sub-
standard education services and questionable practices by some
providers, and by education and immigration agents. These have all
contributed to the perception of widespread immigration rorting and of
an education industry in crisis. http://www.aph.gov.au/library/Pubs/B...10/10bd028.htm

Beyond laptops: the real education revolution
There is a need to ensure the Australian community understands the
broad issues underpinning globalisation, the knowledge economy, and
the constant evolution and updating of skills in the labour force
required to remain competitive in the current environment. Ask an
employer what skills they wished their people had more of and they
will usually respond with things like creativity, collaboration,
communication, the ability to manage uncertainty and emotional
intelligence. http://www.apo.org.au/commentary/bey...ion-revolution
