   24 National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Amendment (Governance and Other Matters) Bill 2020

The order of the day having been read for the resumption of the debate on the question—That the bill be now read a second time—

Debate resumed by Ms Kearney who moved, as an amendment—That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading, the House notes that:

(1)    the Government has damaged Australia’s world-class vocational training system by:

(a)    cutting funding for vocational education and TAFE by over $3 billion;

(b)   presiding over simultaneous crises of skills shortages and youth unemployment; and

(c)    failing to tackle falling completion rates, with more people dropping out of vocational training courses than finishing them; and

(2)    this bill fails to deliver the reform needed to fix problems in the vocational training sector”.

Debate ensued.
