Co-designing the National Skills Commission, National Careers Institute and Skills Organisation Pilots


National consultations on the three key initiatives of the Australian Government’s $585.3 million Skills Package Delivering Skills for Today and Tomorrow have now started.

The three co-design initiatives are:

  • the National Skills Commission, which will oversee the Australian Government’s investment in the VET system and promote a nationwide approach to skills forecasting.
  • two Skills Organisations pilots, will trial new approaches to industry leadership to help improve the national training system for both industry and students. The pilots will be in the key future job markets of human services care, and digital technologies (including cyber security).
  • the National Careers Institute, established in July 2019, to provide leadership in the delivery of high quality, evidence-based career development to help Australians make informed decisions about their learning, training and work pathways. This workshop will examine how the Institute can most effectively achieve its purpose.

These initiatives are essential in building the foundation for long-term improvements to the sector and will ensure Australia is ready for emerging industries.

Co-design consultations are taking place around Australia until 19 November 2019. Visit the individual websites or email for more information.

The Government encourages everyone with an interest in our VET sector to engage in the discussion and have their say in the future skills sector.
