SkillsIQ Ltd is a not-for-profit, independent Skills Service Organisation supporting a range of Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) to undertake training product development that ensures skills meet future industry needs.
We support 17 Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) representing some 90 diverse service-related and ‘people-facing’ industry sectors. The IRCs are collectively responsible for overseeing the development and review of ten training packages serving the skills needs of almost 50 per cent of the Australian workforce.
Our IRCs represent industries including community services, health, retail & wholesale, sport, fitness, community recreation, outdoor recreation, tourism, travel, hospitality, events, restaurants, holiday parks & resorts, local government, public sector, hairdressing, beauty services, floristry, community pharmacy and funeral services.
SkillsIQ objectives include facilitating IRCs to advise the Australian Government via the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) on positioning Australia to respond to additional demands for services as our population ages and to capitalise on synergies across the services sector to increase career pathways and mobility and recruitment of young people.
Our services embody our values and drive the way we do business:
