November 2017 Update

In November, key stakeholder and industry consultations were undertaken as directed by the Sustainability IRC. These discussions identified a number of training package development priorities which were considered by the Committee at their first meeting.

At this meeting the Sustainability IRC also participated in a workshop to consider the Future Skills and Training Resource. The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) designed this resource to support IRCs in developing their Industry Skills Forecasts and Proposed Schedules of Work.

This resource enables industry to describe the key trends affecting their workforce and the implications for skills and training.
