New Skills Commission marks new training era for South Australia

Major reforms to South Australia’s skills system, to be led by the South Australian Skills Commission, have come into effect today.

The key changes, outlined in the new Skills Regulations and Standards established under the South Australian Skills Act (SAS Act), include:

The Commission will continue to have responsibility for regulating the traineeship and apprenticeship system and for providing independent monitoring and oversight of the training system in South Australia.

It will also have a strong focus on industry engagement, including the management of the Industry Skills Councils.

The South Australian Skills Commission – led by inaugural Skills Commissioner Renee Hindmarsh - brings together important functions delivered by the Office of the Training Advocate and the Training and Skills Commission, which will no longer operate.
