In 2017, CEDA events will review the future of the Australian education system.
The education system is a critical contributor to Australia's economy. As one of Australia's biggest exports there are many questions that need addressing including:
- What is the future of the education system in Australia?
- How can unique individual requirements be met?
- Where does funding come from – government, public, private?
- Does the online environment change how people are educated, and if so, how?
- What is the role for business and industry?
Further to the education system itself, discussions also need to centre on workforce reform and the future of work.
Essential for the progress and growth of Australia as well as for millions of individuals, CEDA will drive discussion on education in 2017 examining these complex questions with cross-sector speakers and influencers.

VET: securing skills for growth
CEDA released a research report in August 2016, which examines the role of Vocational Education and Training (VET) in meeting the skills required for Australia's growth.
CEDA’s major report for 2016, Australia's economic future: an agenda for growth, presents a range of policy reforms that an incoming government of either persuasion could adopt. These reforms have been chosen to address the current economic and social challenges of Australia and are designed to kick-start a surge in improving economic conditions.
