This series of Skills Demand Snapshots have been developed by the Office of the Victorian Skills Commissioner in conjunction with key industry stakeholders and provide a genuine understanding of the current and future skills and training requirements of each sector, with a focus on the element of the workforce using VET courses and their associated career pathways.
The Victorian Vocational Education and Training (VET) system aims to deliver real training for real jobs by providing up to date training for new challenges within the Victorian economy. This set of Skills Demand Snapshots will complement the Regional Skills Demand Profiles to provide a richer picture of the skills needs of Victorian employers. Insights from these consultations will inform government priorities.
This information can be used by TAFE and training providers to better understand a sector’s priorities in terms of occupation and skill demand to ensure that the supply side responds appropriately to VET opportunities.
