Vocational education and training review submissions

The expert reviewer, the Honourable Steven Joyce, agreed to publish submissions online, provided the author of the submission consented to its publication.

In addition, there were two submissions published without names where the authors requested their submissions be published anonymously.


The views or opinions expressed in submissions are those of the author. Mr Joyce, the Commonwealth or any Commonwealth official are not adopting or endorsing any comments expressed. The Department is publishing the submissions to inform public debate and scrutiny of the conduct of the Review.

The Commonwealth does not warrant the truth or accuracy of the content of any submission and no person should rely on the content of any submission without undertaking their own independent inquiries.

If a person has any concerns about the publication of a submission, they should use the webform on the Contact us page of the website. The Department will investigate and, if appropriate, remove the content.


To ensure that the privacy of individuals is protected in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988, and that the Commonwealth complies with other legal obligations, some submissions may be published with certain details removed (for example names, addresses and phone numbers). There may be formatting changes or redactions as a result.

Further information about how the Department handles and protects personal information is contained in the Department's Privacy Policy.
