Joint Submission with WAVE- Submission to Senate Standing Committee on Education & Employment- Jobs and Skills Australia Amendment Bill 2023

9 April 2023

Women in Vocational and Adult Education (WAVE) and the Equality Rights Alliance (ERA) thank the Senate Standing Committee for the opportunity to put forward this submission to the Jobs and Skills Australia Amendment Bill 2023 Inquiry.

In summary, while WAVE and ERA welcome many of the changes to JSA put forward in this Bill we are advocating and encouraging the Australian Government to amend/strengthen the functions and governance of JSA so that equity (including intersectional gender equity) is core to all of the Agency’s work and sustainably so.

In this submission we also include WAVE’s key policy goals to create an equitable Australian Education and Training system.
