ALA and partners WAVE, ACED and the RMIT European Centre for Education are committed to advancing equitable access to quality adult education and urge Australian Governments to transform education and training systems to ensure that all individuals, communities, and businesses can participate equally and achieve the outcomes necessary to enjoy a sustainable emerging future.
The coalition of leaders has released a statement following a joint forum held last month on Transforming education and training in Australia: challenges and opportunities that included a wide range of international and national presenters. The forum opened with a video presentation from the Minister for Skills and Training, Brendon O’Connor.
We are calling for equitable access to quality adult education & training - underpinned by principles of equity, gender, & sustainability.
The Statement has been endorsed by not-for-profit groups Literacy for Life and Community Colleges Australia. Other organisations are encouraged to endorse and circulate the Statement.
