Andrew Forrest’s Indigenous employment project: do the arguments stack up?

17 Oct 2014
Description

The Forrest Review represents the primary problem of Indigenous employment services as ill-discipline borne of overly permissive government funding. Providers of publicly-funded employment and training programs must be disciplined by tying the bulk of their income to 26-week employment outcome payments and the power to dictate what training they offer must be passed over to employers who say they can guarantee jobs.
However, this way of defining the problem and its solutions dramatically oversimplifies the very complex realities that seek to improve Indigenous employment participation, writes Kirrily Jordan, in her article in the Australian Review of Public Affairs (336).
