The success of Australian businesses, communities, and the national economy, now and into the future, relies on a workforce with world-class skills. Building these skills requires a VET system that is responsive, agile, and forward-thinking. This has been highlighted recently through a range of Government and industry announcements and reports, the latest being the Productivity Commissioner’s interim report released last week on the review of the National Agreement for Skills and Workforce Development.

AIS is committed to remaining responsive and innovative to skills development. From logistics and supply chains, to corrections, airport security, battery storage and design, Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) supported by AIS are working to quickly deliver training packages in response to current and arising industry needs.

Working groups to address skills, safety and productivity of the rail industry

Three working groups have been formed to improve the productivity and safety of the rail industry, and address key issues facing the sector, including skills development. The three working groups cover skills and labour, interoperability, and harmonising national standards. The leadership of each group includes government and industry representatives.

Building new skills to grow emerging renewable industries

Emerging renewable industries are driving the need for new technologies, helping Australia compete on the world stage while creating jobs and jumpstarting the economy. AIS is working to support industry sectors to be forward-looking, flexible, and responsive in skills development, as new opportunities and challenges arise.

AIS Global supports diversity in learning and teaching

AIS Global is the business arm of AIS and is undertaking a range of skills and workforce development activities domestically and internationally. One of its current projects is the development of the first-of-its-kind Gender Equality, Diversity and Social Inclusion (GEDSI) strategy for Nguyen Huu Canh College in Ho Chi Minh City.
