First round of Industry Advisory Group meetings
In November and December the Office of the Victorian Skills Commissioner hosted the first round of Industry Advisory Group meetings.
More than 150 Industry Advisory Group members from industries ranging from construction and health to resources and manufacturing attended meetings which kicked off on November 2 and concluded on December 20.
The meetings, one for each of the 10 Industry Advisory Groups, provided a platform for members to discuss skill demand pressures and future industry skills needs.
The Industry Advisory Groups will serve as an important reference for the VSC, providing industry intelligence around priority growth sectors as well as existing industries. They will play a formal role in informing the VSC with workforce training needs as part of the Government’s funded training system.
