Public consultation now open, seeking your feedback
The draft 2019 Industry Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work prepared on behalf of the Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Industry Reference Committee is NOW available for review until Monday 25 March 2019.
Textiles, Clothing and Footwear businesses are facing challenges associated with an ageing workforce, the introduction of new technologies and business models, changing consumer behaviour and environmental and ethical concerns.
Vocational Education and Training (VET) for the Textiles, Clothing and Footwear industry needs to build advanced technical skills to support quality craftsmanship, as well as the broader science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and technological skills to capitalise on new ways of working.
The IRC identified the creation of a new Industrial Sewing skill set as critical and have submitted a Case for Change related to this priority area. This will support the development of transferable, entry-level skills allowing workforce mobility across a range of Textiles, Clothing and Footwear industry sectors.
