The Brotherhood of St Laurence welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Discussion Paper on Skills Reform. Our responses are framed around a recommendation that the Victorian Government should: Ensure every Victorian school-leaver develops a learner–worker identity complemented by competency in employability skills in general and literacy and numeracy in particular ; Increase and sustain funding for the range of transition supports through school to work Provide incentives to employers to support them in recruiting and selection young apprentices and trainees ; Fund access to skills audit and recognition of prior learning mapped to AQF qualifications for all currently employed Victorians who lack an initial qualification at a minimum of CIII level ; Equip all employers with the skills, knowledge and resources to ensure their employees’ successful participation in and completion of nationally recognised training mapped to their workplace requirements ; Adequately fund workplace literacy initiatives for all enterprises identifying issues with workplace literacy ; Offer incentives for TAFE to move away from course-based learning to customised responses, delivered in partnership where necessary, to meet the assessed needs of individuals and businesses ; Strengthen the commitment to applied learning pedagogies in all domains of teacher training.
