On behalf of the eleven IRC’s that AIS supports, the 2018 IRC Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work was submitted on 30 April to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC). On behalf of the IRCs and the team at AIS, we want to thank all stakeholders who provided feedback and engaged in the development process.
The IRC Skills Forecasts focus on the prioritisation of the skill needs of the industry sectors each IRC has responsibility for. Each Skills Forecast contains the following sections:
The Skills forecast is deliberately brief. It is a snapshot of a continually evolving story, intended to alert and inform a wide audience about the most prominent issues facing the sector and to enhance the industry’s capacity to act.
The Proposed Schedule of Work follows the Skills Forecast and clearly articulates the IRCs’ year-on-year priorities for Training Package review and development across the four-year forward period. Project details specific to 2018-2019 projects are further broken down with a description, rationale, consultation plan and the Scope of the Project.
The IRC Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work for each IRC is currently with the Australian Industry and Skills Committee for consideration and approval. Work commissioned by the AISC will become part of the overall National Schedule across all IRCs in the National Training System. The National Schedule is a four-year rolling schedule of work.
AIS will alert all registered stakeholders once the AISC provide information on work commissioned, which will result in Training Package review and development.
