Manufacturing Industry Skills Alliance is established by IBSA to provide industry with a stronger, more strategic voice in ensuring Australia’s VET sector delivers improved outcomes for learners and employers. It will cover the industries of manufacturing and engineering, light manufacturing including pharmaceuticals, print, food and advanced manufacturing, and emerging industries including defence and space technologies.
The Manufacturing JSC will deliver a collaborative, tripartite arrangement that brings employers, unions, and governments together to address manufacturing’s skills shortages and broader workforce challenges. It also recognises the key role of training providers. This includes supporting industry and training providers to improve training and assessment practice, map career pathways across education sectors, and act as a source of intelligence on issues affecting their industries.
Overall, the new Jobs and Skills Council structure will move beyond the narrow focus on training package development, which was a feature of the SSO model, to address system-wide barriers from a labour market perspective.
IBSA is looking to deepen partnerships between industry, education and training providers to support quality, inclusive training delivery, with TAFEs playing an active role in helping develop standards and qualifications.
