The Australian Industry and Skills Committee’s (AISC) online resource, the National Industry Insights Report is a new, comprehensive source of information for Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) on the latest economic and employment trends, priority skills and education and training patterns in industry sectors.
The Report is industry driven, bringing together industry intelligence from IRCs with broader labour market and training data. The resource is part of the AISC’s focus on creating a strong evidence base to inform VET training package development.
It includes both industry level information and a ‘national overview’ – a cross industry analysis of skills forecasts and trends, and factors that affect the supply and demand for skills.
The Report aims to support IRCs when developing their annual Skills Forecasts and Proposed Schedules of Work, and in prioritising VET training package development to ensure qualifications meet the current and future skills needs of industry. It is also a handy tool for businesses, training organisations, policy makers and industry groups.
You can access the Report on the National Industry Insights Report website, or via the hyperlink on the AISC website. The report was developed for the AISC by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER).
