COAG Standing Council on Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment
New COAG Arrangements Announced
The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) met on Friday 13 December 2013. COAG considered its Council arrangements and announced a new Council for Industry and Skills.
An immediate priority for the new Industry and Skills Council will be to help develop cooperative joint proposals to facilitate transition of the manufacturing sector over the coming years and foster internationally competitive high-end manufacturing in Australia, for COAG’s consideration by April 2014.
The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Standing Council on Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment (SCOTESE) has been established.
The purpose of SCOTESE, as set out in its Terms of Reference, is to ensure that Australia’s current and future workforce needs are met through increased participation, educational attainment, skills development and skills use to achieve greater productivity. SCOTESE held its inaugural meeting on 25 November 2011.
SCOTESE is part of the Council System supporting COAG. With the launch of SCOTESE, the remit for the Ministerial Council for Tertiary Education and Employment (MCTEE) has been withdrawn.
