This research overview summarises the work undertaken by Kaye Bowman and Suzy McKenna that explored the jurisdictional approaches to student training entitlement funding and associated provider quality standards and the implications for the fundamental principles of the national training system. One of these principles is balancing consistency and flexibility. Student training entitlements is a recent nationally agreed funding reform where this tension has become especially apparent during implementation, with implications for objectives of the national training system.
