CEO UPDATE

I am excited about the upcoming AIS Industry Skills Forums which are attracting keen interest from stakeholders across industry. The forums are a great opportunity to hear from industry leaders about the future of work and participate in discussions around skills and workforce development. The forums dovetail with AIS’s new responsibility for supporting the Digital Transformation Industry Reference Committee (IRC), set up to help ensure vocational education and training gives students the future-focused skills they will need.

REGISTER NOW FOR AIS FORUM THAT EXPLORES FUTURE SKILLING OF AUSTRALIA’S WORKFORCE

Join industry leaders in discussions at the upcoming AIS Industry Skills Forums on what skills will be required by Australia’s workforce in the digital age. In Canberra on 11 September, the panellists include one of the world’s experts on port management and logistics, Professor Devinder Grewal. He will be joined by leaders focused on business, innovation, defence, energy and safety.

TRAINING BRINGS WORKPLACE DIVERSITY TO VICTORIA’S RAIL INDUSTRY

A new generation of rail talent is being developed in Victoria. Training for the Future, a State government and industry partnership program, is building a skilled, diverse and socially inclusive workforce for the rail infrastructure industry.

TECHNOLOGICAL WIND OF CHANGE IS NOW A DIGITAL GALE

Many science-fiction fantasies are now everyday reality. The pace of digital transformation is aptly compared to an industrial Big Bang, rapidly disrupting not only our workplace but also our lifestyles.

FUNDING EXTENDED FOR SKILLS SERVICE ORGANISATIONS

Australian industry will continue to have a strong voice in the development of modern and relevant training packages, with the Federal Government extending the funding arrangements for six Skills Service Organisations (SSOs).
