Every year, each ISC produces an Environmental Scan on the external factors impacting on their respective industry and the implications for skills development and workforce planning. Based on real-time industry views and evidence from across Australia, the Scans act as an ‘early warning system’ to the VET sector and enable readers to understand how well the products of Australia’s training system are responding. Find all 12 Environmental Scans here.
Flowing from intelligence gained through the Environmental Scan process, each ISC produces a Continuous Improvement Plan which outlines the changes to be made to Training Package qualifications in order for them to meet industry’s new and emerging skill needs.
