South Australia’s Industry Skills Councils launched

Ten new Industry Skills Councils have been established to support the work of the South Australian Skills Commission and provide a mechanism for businesses, peak industry associations, and employee and employer representatives to discuss with government skills and workforce needs.

The formation of the Industry Skills Councils reflect a re-engagement with industry around skills and training and a desire for industry to have a lead role in the development of the skills system and how we train their people.

The councils have been designed to represent both the State’s key and whole of economy industry sectors and will ensure that industry has a direct say in how our training system can better support the South Australian economy as a whole.

The two year appointment of the Industry Skills Councils follows an extensive nomination and selection process undertaken by the South Australian Skills Commission.

The Industry Skills Councils will contribute to the work of the South Australian Government by bringing greater industry definition to the key challenges and opportunities including improving VET completions, ensuring we are building the skills pipeline needed and supporting all apprentices and trainees to successfully complete their training.
