Industry Skills Forum 2018


AIS is kicking off a series of industry skills forums across the country to explore current and future skill needs. The forums will provide the opportunity to directly shape the skills and workforce priorities for your industry.

This is your chance to:

  • Discuss barriers and opportunities to develop and recruit skilled employees – now and for the future
  • Influence the development of world class qualifications
  • Learn about current strategies targeting workforce development
  • Reveal emerging skill needs for your industry
  • Engage with industry leaders

Future-skilling our people will be critical for industry and educators as the global environment evolves and emerging technologies impact job requirements. While new opportunities are driving the economy, there are challenges to ensure business can access a sustainable, flexible workforce with high-quality skills.

AIS undertakes stakeholder engagement, research and analysis on behalf of the 11 Industry Reference Committees (IRC) we support. The industry skills forums are a central platform in our intelligence gathering activity and will allow us to identify industry skill needs, now and into the future.

Information and intelligence gathered from the forums will assist the IRCs to develop next year’s IRC Skills Forecasts and Proposed Schedules of Work.

The forums will be held in each State and Territory, kicking off in early September:
