Given the number of IRC’s served by SkillsIQ, there is potential for significant cross-industry synergies through a consolidated service industries model.
All of our sectors have a fundamental common theme. Their workforce is the first touch point in dealing with their “customers” across the whole gamut of the health and community services through to the retail front line.
To maximise opportunities to identify cross sector issues the Cross-Sectoral Skills Committee (CSSC) has been established. The CSSC comprises the Chair of each IRC and has a powerful and unique opportunity to harness the potential offered by the IRCs’ broad coverage of the services sectors. The CSSC will be able to achieve a shared understanding of cross-sector commonalities in characteristics and skills of different industry sectors and the opportunity this offers to develop qualifications for a highly adaptive workforce.
