It seems that the government is taking steps to make it easier to track a person’s training and qualifications via online records. In an official statement released in June, the federal Minister for Industry, Ian Macfarlane said:
‘The Australian Government is delivering more improvements to the skills and training system to ensure students can move more easily from training into paid jobs that boost national productivity.
From next year, millions of Australians will be able to build an online record of their vocational education and training attainments and qualifications.
The online record will be accessible throughout a student’s life, helping to make lost qualifications a thing of the past.
