For capitalism to work there must be a level of unemployment - you can't just punish people for eternity because they are unemployed which is what this policy will most likely do to many people.

What if they don't have the financial means or academic ability to study? It's not always a clear cut situation.

What I find really concerning is that young people who have gained work, have worked, if they lose their job why should they have to then suffer for that for six months? It only puts more pressure on parents really, and puts young people in a state of dependency on others. We should be helping/allowing young people to be and maintain independence! And why is 30 the cut-off? How is a 29 year-old less deserving when they lose their job than a 31 year-old? It's just a really bad policy move on so many levels.

But I do totally get what you're saying. My issue is that 'learning' in the higher education sense doesn't suit everyone. Have you ever tried to teach a class of teenagers since the leaving age was raised to 16 (as it has been in SA?) who have a learning style that doesn't suit the traditional high school model? Or tried to teach a young Aboriginal boy who adores horses and all he wants is to work on the land, and cannot see at all what relevance Anglo-centric academic education systems have to his life goals? TAFE is supposedly more vocational than university, but still has a lecture/tutorial/assignment/exam methodology for many of its components.
Perhaps if 'learning' were broadened to the Government pouring funding into apprenticeships and learn-on-the-job kind of scenarios then there would be hope.

I had planned to study and work when my youngest starts preschool/school. Now I'm wondering if I will just be stuck in a low skilled, low paying job.

ok so we want this adults to be learning of earning.
Ok if John Jones losses his job today and he needs to find a approved course that he can afford (let's face most are not cheap and a lot aren't covered by hecs).
Ok he found a course now but it doesn't start for 4 mths. or even if it dose start sooner he has to be approved to start it. This too can take weeks/months.
So in the mean time who pays his rent because like a lot of people he is on a 12mth contract or his mortgage. How does he feed himself.
Seriously this is a real worry to me as John Jones could be my dd.
What if John is like my d's with learning difficulties and would struggled to get approved to do a course.
There are so many reasons why this is a bad idea.
I don't know about you guys but I can't afford to run 2 households on what I get now. After the new cuts to ftb and rising medical bills I will be struggling to just run one.
