2019 Industry Skills Forecasts - Public consultation

Guided by the 19 Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) we support, SkillsIQ is in the process of developing draft 2019 Industry Skills Forecasts. These Forecasts provide:

  • An overview of the sector of focus, and the current challenges and opportunities it faces, along with an analysis of current and projected employment and workforce skills needs
  • Proposed workplans for 2019-20 and subsequent years, which will be put forward to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) for consideration.

These workplans have been developed incorporating information sourced in a variety of ways, including meetings and consultation with stakeholders; desktop research; an industry workforce survey open to all stakeholders across all industries; and consultation with IRC members and their stakeholder networks.

There are currently no public consultations open.
