New Projects – Update on Progress

Below is a list of projects being undertaken by Skills Impact during 2018-2019 to improve industry vocational qualifications.

The need for this work has been driven by various developments, trends, issues or challenges within industry, which are impacting job roles and skill needs. For example, the Aboriculture Project aims to address falling training enrolment numbers by removing significant barriers to training and assessment. Arborists are on the National Skills Needs List and employers are facing severe challenges in attracting skilled staff.

The drivers for each of these projects were outlined in the 2018-2020 Skills Forecasts. They were approved for development by the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC).
