Skills Forecasts

Every year, we support Industry Reference Committees (IRC) to produce updated IRC Skills Forecasts and Proposed Schedules of Work (Skills Forecasts), which propose projects to review and develop relevant units of competency, skill sets and qualifications. The Skills Forecasts identify skills gaps, emerging markets and changing work methods. The proposed schedules of work detail a four-year work plan of projects. The Australian Industry Skills Committee considers the information in these reports and approves various projects for development. Read more.
