The AISC is committed to ensuring Australia’s national training system is well positioned to address the workforce challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and the necessary skills for economic recovery.
Emergency Response Sub-committee
The AISC Emergency Response Sub-Committee (sub-committee) was established on 3 April 2020 under the direction of the COAG Skills Council to enable short-term and urgent adjustments to qualifications and training package requirements to respond to areas of critical workforce and skills needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The scope of the subcommittee was expanded by Skills Ministers on 15 May 2020 to enable it to continue its role in fast tracking national training products to meet longer term critical skills needs beyond the COVID-19 to support economic recovery.

The sub-committee’s term ended on 31 December 2020, however stakeholder feedback on COVID-19 issues are still welcome and will be passed on to the AISC for consideration.
Issues may be in relation to immediate skill needs and/or impacts for training delivery, as well as issues/impacts that are likely to be felt over the medium to longer term as a result of COVID-19.
