Skills Impact is a not-for-profit, industry-owned organisation that collaborates with industry, government and training providers to track industry trends and document skills opportunities and challenges. Our work helps support learners and workplaces with their skills needs, promoting employment opportunities and industry competitiveness.

Between 2016 and 2022, Skills Impact held a Skills Service Organisation (SSO) role to review and develop learning and skills standards for industry. In 2023, we established Skills Insight to manage one of ten Jobs and Skills Councils, to represent industry sectors including agribusiness, ecosystem and biosecurity management, animal care and management, racing and breeding, forestry, wood and timber products pulp and paper, landscaping, fishing and aquaculture, meat and seafood processing, furnishing, fibre, clothing and footwear.

Skills Impact, and its predecessors, have been supporting industries to develop the skills of their workforce for nearly 30 years. 2023 will bring a reinvigorated approach to vocational education and training (VET) and we are excited to have a role in this new system, to support industry to contribute to improvements to the Australian skills system.

With staff often sourced from the industries we service or from the tertiary education system, we are passionate about workforce development and the need for industry to have their say in the skills standards of their workforce.
