VCOSS recognises the key role that the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector plays in supporting the Victorian economy and community, both at a national and state level. VET provides an important pathway to employment. Paid employment prevents poverty, enabling people to earn enough income to participate more fully in society. It can help lower rates of financial crisis, homelessness, family conflict and violence, alcohol and other drug use, physical and mental health problems, disengagement from education and contact with the justice system.
Victoria’s unemployment rate is rising and it is people who already face disadvantage who are affected most often, for the longest periods, and with the most serious consequences. Tackling unemployment lays out the key strategies for a workforce participation plan to help all Victorians get back to work.
