In his Letter of Expectation, the Education Minister charged the Establishment Board with delivering the necessary foundations for a strong, capable national institute that will be a cornerstone of the new vocational education system.

An Establishment Unit has been set up to put in place the people, networks, and structures to enable the Institute to operate on 1 April 2020 as a parent organisation with 16 subsidiaries.

The work is organised in two parts:

  • ten workstreams cover the ‘priority deliverables’ required to lay the foundation for a credible, sustainable institute from 1 April 2020; and
  • seven working groups are focussing on the future skills and capabilities of the new institute through the transition phase.

Once the legislation is passed and the Institute is established, it will continue to build the capabilities required for an effective transition to support workplace learning, with the goal of being fully operational by December 2022.
