A new economic modelling report [available in VOCEDplus at TD/TNC 113.613] on technical and vocational education provides evidence on how the sector supports employment and productivity. Three Australian industry skills councils took part in the analysis: Agri-Foods ISC, Innovation and Business Skills Australia (IBSA), and Transport and Logistics ISC. The objective of this position paper from TDA is to advocate that the study illustrates opportunities for greater balance to tertiary education funding in Australia.
