On Wednesday 9 November 2016 the Committee adopted an inquiry referred by the Minister for Employment, Education and Training, Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham, asking the Committee to inquire into and report on matters that ensure Australia’s tertiary system - including universities and public and private providers of vocational education and training - can meet the needs of a future labour force focused on innovation and creativity.
The Committee invites interested persons and organisations to make submissions addressing
the terms of reference by 1 February 2017.
