IRC Skills Forecast

The Industry Reference Committee (IRC) is responsible for developing an IRC Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work at the beginning of each year. The document undergoes consultation with industry and is submitted to the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC) in April.

The IRC Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work identifies skills gaps and emerging skills needs within industry and determines whether there is a need to change the training package (i.e. units of competency and qualifications). The AISC draws on this information to update their AISC National Schedule, and to determine future Training Package Projects.

Thank you to those who provided feedback on this year’s draft document. The final document, that was submitted to the AISC, can be downloaded by clicking the link below.

On behalf of the IRC, Skills Impact will continue to receive feedback on this Skill Forecast and any feedback received will be incorporated into the next edition. Please feel free to email any comments or feedback you have about the current document to so this information can be considered in the 2018 draft.

Note: the IRC Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work was previously called an IRC Four Year Work Plan.
