2019 Sustainability Industry Skills Forecast submitted to AISC

We are pleased to advise that the final draft 2019 Industry Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work, prepared on behalf of the Sustainability Industry Reference Committee, was submitted to the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC) for consideration at their June meeting.

The Industry Skills Forecast identified a number of Key Drivers for Change and scheduled a number of priorities for 2019-2023

Key Driver/s of Change:

  • Significant business concerns about energy security and energy management.
  • Rising focus on circular economy principles and practices as a result of new state and commonwealth government strategies for waste management.
  • Increasing focus on advanced manufacturing and sustainable manufacturing processes.

Priorities for 2019–20:

Competitive Systems and Practices Qualifications
The priority identified as important and proposed for 2019–20 is to review the fitness for purpose of Competitive Systems and Practices qualifications in meeting workforce upskilling demands and emerging technological changes.

(It is anticipated that a separate Case for Change will be submitted in late-2019.)

This information has been used to update the AISC National Schedule of training package development projects.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback and comments.
