Australian Industry and Skills Committee

The Australian Industry and Skills Committee is committed to ensuring that our national training system meets the needs of workers and
employers now and into the future.

COVID-19 - AISC response

The AISC is committed to ensuring that our national training system can rapidly respond to areas of critical workforce and skill needs arising as a result of the impact of COVID-19.

Our current focus is on identifying training products (for example, skill sets) to better support rapid upskilling and reskilling of displaced workers to assist them to quickly secure new employment opportunities. We are also exploring opportunities to support any urgent and unmet skills needs of businesses as they seek to adjust to the significantly altered economic environment.

What is the AISC doing?

Who are we

The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) is made up of Industry leaders from across Australia who are responsible for national training package product development under our vocational education and training (VET) sector.

Our membership brings together deep expertise across a broad range of sectors.

Industry Reference Committees

Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) are the formal channel for considering industry skills requirements in the development and review of training packages. Each IRC is made up of people with close links to industry. They are leaders in their own sectors from big business to small enterprise and peak bodies to unions, who understand the skills needs of their sector, industry or occupation.
