IRC Skills Forecasts & Proposed Schedules of Work

Thank you to those who provided feedback on this year’s draft documents. The final documents, that were submitted to the AISC, can be viewed on the Skills Impact website here.

On behalf of the 11 Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) Skills Impact supports, we have completed work on 8 2017 IRC Skills Forecasts and Proposed Schedules of Work. These documents are reviewed annually by the IRCs, undergo consultation with industry and submitted to the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC) in April.

The documents identify skills gaps and emerging skills needs within industry and determine whether there is a need to change training packages (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.

On behalf of the IRCs, Skills Impact will continue to receive feedback on these Skill Forecasts 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 documents to [email protected] so this information can be considered in the 2018 drafts.
