March 2019: Consultation

Consultation for the draft 2019 Aerospace Industry Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work ended on Friday 8 March.

Thank you to those stakeholders who provided comment. Broad consultation was undertaken which involved the draft 2019 Industry Skills Forecast being made available via the website along with an online survey to gather feedback.

Feedback is now being reviewed by the Aerospace Industry Reference Committee. The final version will then be submitted to the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC). Once endorsed, final documents will then be published on this page.


February 2019: Consultation now closed

The Industry Skills Forecast identified the following skills gaps and emerging skills needs within industry:

  • A critical shortage of Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers in Australia.
  • Alignment of the regulatory frameworks of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and the Australian Qualification Framework provides an opportunity to alleviate skill shortages in the industry.
  • The comprehensiveness of the Case for Change submitted as part of the 2018 Industry Skills Forecast, that requested a complete review of the MEA Aeroskills Training Package and also consider alignment of VET qualification standards to CASA licensing regulations, mean there are no further proposed items for inclusion in the 2019-2023 Proposed Schedule of Work.
