Higher Education Support Amendment (VET FEE-HELP Reform) Bill 2015; Consideration of Senate Message
That the amendments be agreed to
I welcome the support by this parliament for the measures contained in this bill, which will allow the VET FEE-HELP system to remain sustainable as we move to a new model of VET FEE-HELP for 2017. The measures in this bill will protect the interests of students and taxpayers. The government is committed to ensure that we have a vocational education system that delivers high-quality training to meet the needs of students and that delivers the skilled workforce that this nation needs for the 21st century. I commend the bill to the House.
