One of the main focuses of ISA is to lead and drive workforce development planning and skills development for the Transport and Logistics (Road, Rail, Aviation and Maritime), Omnichannel Logistics and Space Transport industries.
“Whether it’s devastating floods, bushfires, the global pandemic or unexpected trade restrictions, it’s the resilience and strength of our nation’s supply chains that dictate how we fare as a society and how quickly our economy rebounds and grows.
Led by industry, our model brings together leaders from right across Australia’s core supply chain sectors with the strategic goal of building a world class, resilient and agile supply chain workforce” said Laurie D’Apice, AIS Chair and Linfox President of Human Resources.
Responsibilities of Industry Skills Australia As A Jobs and Skills Council
As a Jobs and Skills Council, here are some of ISA’s broad range of responsibilities:
- Assessing and forecasting the current and future skills needs of the industry, and creating national workforce development plans
- Improving the quality, innovation, and speed to market of training products
- Developing and implementing solutions, promoting career pathways, and monitoring the effectiveness of training delivery
- Industry stewardship to give the industry a robust and evidentiary-based voice on issues affecting their industries and to provide advice on VET system policies to ensure they are fit for purpose.
Date of Transition To Industry Skills Australia
The Jobs and Skills Councils will be established from January 2023 and will be in place for all major sectors of the economy.
This is an exciting time for the Australian workforce as we work together to build a world-class, resilient, and agile workforce.
