The IRC Skills Forecasts focus on the prioritisation of the skill needs of the industry sectors each IRC has responsibility for. They are developed and reviewed annually and submitted on behalf of the IRC to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) for approval. The Public Safety Industry Reference Committee has assigned responsibility for the PUA Public Safety Training Package, POL Police Training Package and DEF Defence Training Packages.
The document is deliberately brief, it does not seek to capture every issue within every sector. It is a snapshot of a continually evolving story that is intended to alert and inform a wide audience and enhance their capacity to act.
IRCs are required to consult broadly with stakeholders to ensure a whole-of-industry view about the opportunities and challenges for the workforce and the Training Package review work necessary to meet industry needs.
Industry Overview: includes information on the overall value and contribution to the Australian economy, including current challenges and opportunities.
Employment includes information on skills shortages, workforce supply side challenges and opportunities, and key workforce data.
Skills Outlook: contains national and international trends, priority skills for industry and other skills related insights.
Proposed Schedule of Work: draws on the information in the earlier sections to clearly articulate the IRCs priorities for Training Package review and development across the four-year period on a year by year basis.
The 2019 Public Safety IRC Skills Forecast is submitted to the AISC for its consideration and approval. Work approved by the AISC becomes part of the overall National Schedule across all IRCs in the National Training System. More detail about AISC commissioned Training Package activity is available on the AIS Projects page.
