Standing Council on Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment
The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Standing Council on Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment (SCOTESE) was established in September 2011.
Reporting to COAG, the purpose of SCOTESE 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 has high-level policy responsibility for:
- higher education
- vocational education and training (VET), including skills and workforce development
- international education
- adult and community education
The National Advisory for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment (NATESE) provides the policy and secretariat support to SCOTESE and a number of its key advisory bodies.
