NSW Skills Board
The NSW Skills Board advises the NSW Government on how best to meet the skills and training needs of NSW individuals, industry, regions and the economy. The board provides independent, high level, strategic advice on the vocational education and training system in NSW.
The board is also responsible for overseeing major reform of the vocational education and training system in NSW. This included the shift to a more contestable training market, funding allocations, training outcomes, quality assurance and budget sustainability under Smart and Skilled.
The NSW Skills Board was established under the Skills Board Bill 2013, which received assent on the 27 November 2013. The NSW Skills Board replaces the Board of Vocational Education and Training (BVET).
