Author: Pickersgill, Richard; Walsh, Michael


This paper provides an overview of the Training Reform Agenda (TRA) and suggests that the longevity of structured training in Australia and the effectiveness of recent proposals for new forms of structured training are linked to a range of regulated institutional and labour market issues not usually considered by education and training policy makers. However, it is pointed out that current policies are predicated on the deregulation of labour, product and training markets and this will have significant negative impact on the levels and quality of vocational and industry training.
