POSITIVE POLICY

Commonwealth Institutes of Higher Education

A Shorten Labor Government will establish Commonwealth Institutes of Higher Education to deliver new technical and education opportunities to areas where access remains difficult and participation is too low.   

A total of ten pilot sites will be established across Australia, in locations where need is demonstrated, and where institutions, industry and local communities are ready to implement locally tailored Institutes.

The Institutes will see universities working together with TAFE to trial approaches tailored to local conditions, giving students the skills they need to find local jobs.
