December 2018

2018 has been a very productive year for Australian Industry Standards, in which we have strengthened our partnership with industry to fulfill our mission of establishing a highly adaptive, skilled and productive workforce. 

My sincere appreciation to our IRC Chairs and Committee members for their outstanding contribution again this year. Your work goes a long way to ensuring that your industry’s workforce is prepared with the skills required to handle current industry requirements and adapt to future technological innovations.

Paul Walsh - AIS Chief Operating Officer

This has been another eventful year for all of us at AIS as we continue working with industry and the eleven Industry Reference Committees (IRC) we support. 

Australia’s supply chain skills give industry the edge – we want to hear from you now!

Supply chains are all around us and fundamental to how we live. The food we eat, clothes we wear, buildings we inhabit, transport and equipment we use are all examples of how we benefit from multiple supply chains each and every day.
Government review of VET sector announced

The federal government has commissioned an independent review of the vocational education and training (VET) sector.

The review will focus on how the Australian Government’s investment in VET could be more effective to provide Australians with the skills they need to be successful throughout their working life.
