Joint Ministerial Communiqué

Today’s meeting of the Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs and the

Ministerial Council for Vocational and Technical Education marks the start of a new era of collaboration

between Commonwealth, state and territory education and training ministers. All governments are now

working together to improve education and training in Australia, building on significant state and territory

achievement. Ministers welcomed this new approach which replaces the ad-hoc approach that has marked

recent years.
