Remain up to date on relevant programs, opportunities and events. Access a central source of information and a platform for two-way communication between the Commission and its stakeholders, as well as a forum for discussion on issues of relevance to you and your peers. Connect with others, put forward your perspectives, and make sure your voice is heard.

Earlier this year, as part of the South Australian Government’s Skilling South Australia initiative, Industry Skills Councils (ISCs) were established to strengthen industry’s voice in skills and workforce development, and to ensure funding for skills and training was directly aligned to industry priorities.

Following a revitalisation of the Training and Skills Commission (TaSC), expressions of interest were sought from industry, businesses, peak bodies and the public for members representing the following industry sectors:

The Commission’s eight ISCs - comprised of more than 90 members - consider and articulate the perspectives of South Australian industry around critical issues such as skills and workforce development, skills shortages now and into the future, and reforms to the training system.

Charged with collecting and analysing industry intelligence to support Government decision-making, the ISCs and their workforce roadmaps will play a critical role in informing the Commission’s Training Priorities Plan – to be launched later this year.

Engaging industry

To support South Australian industry in identifying and articulating priorities, TaSC has developed a connection and engagement platform for stakeholders.

Connecting network participants in 160+ sectors and sub-sectors, the platform will ensure you remain up to date on relevant programs, opportunities and events. It will offer a central source of information and – as it evolves - a platform for two-way communication between the Commission and its stakeholders, as well as a forum for discussion on issues of relevance to you and your peers.

Representatives of businesses, industry associations, training organisations, schools, government and community organisations will be encouraged to sign up to the platform, which will go live in October.

Connect with others, put forward your perspectives via surveys on topics including skills shortages and funding priorities, and get involved in developing information to inform training package reviews.

This is a platform for South Australian industry to have its say - make sure your voice is heard.
