What’s the background to the project?
Blockchain technology, mass customisation, the demand for ethical practice and traceability are just some of the drivers rapidly changing how supply chains operate right around the world. As a direct consequence, the skills needed by individual workers are also evolving and whilst many are specific to a particular industry or process, many are recognised as being transferable between industries or common to several elements of a supply chain. 

The Cross Sector Supply Chain Skills Project has been commissioned by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC). Its goal is to develop a series of Skill Sets and Units of Competency for those supply chain skills common to a range of industry sectors and in doing so, support the mobility of skilled labour and agility of the Australian workforce. It will enable the many individuals working along different parts of the supply chain to be skilled to the same world class standards and as a consequence, increase industry’s efficiency and productivity. 

Ultimately, the cross sector Skill Sets and Units of Competency will be signed-off by the AISC and from that point on, form the basis for nationally recognised training throughout Australia in those skills.

Work is being led by a Project Reference Group comprising representatives from across a range of diverse industries. Oversight is by the Transport and Logistics Industry Reference Committee. Technical expertise and project management is by Australian Industry Standards.
