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 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are working with the Australian Government on ways the national training system can be used to support the national response to COVID-19.

What we do

The AISC plays a critical role in the approval of national training package products, ensuring Australian workers are provided with industry-relevant skills that meet the needs of employers both now and into the future.

The AISC also acts as a key consultative body supporting the development of national VET policies.  This includes the COAG VET Reform Roadmap and the COAG Streamlining National Training Products Project which seeks to make the national training system faster, simpler and better able to respond to the needs of industry.

The AISC draws on advice from its extensive network of IRCs supported by the SSOs.
