About SkillsIQ

SkillsIQ Ltd is a not-for-profit, independent organisation, passionate about the role that skills and training play in addressing industry needs. We are committed to advocating for increased transparency and quality in education.

Specialists in stakeholder engagement, in particular in the Vocational Education & Training sector, SkillsIQ has extensive experience in workforce development, research, policy development, and development of skills standards in Australia and overseas.

We have completed many projects in Australia, Latin America and across the Asia-Pacific region, working with governments, industry and also with international bodies such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). These projects include development of national and international skills standards, development and implementation of systems and processes for industry engagement in skills and training, and completion of research and benchmarking reports.

Industries that we have worked with include health, aged services, community services, disability support, retail, sport & recreation, tourism & travel, cookery & hospitality, events, holiday parks & resorts, local government, public sector, hairdressing & beauty services, floristry and others.

SkillsIQ's objectives include ensuring that Vocational Education & Training opportunities provide skills that are relevant for jobs in industry and meet critical skills gaps and shortages. We engage collaboratively with stakeholders across our extensive networks and encourage and facilitate them to work together across industries. This allows them to capitalise on synergies between sectors, thereby aiming to respond to additional demand for skilled workers, optimise career pathways, facilitate labour mobility and encourage increased recruitment of young people.
