Industry Skills Australia (ISA) has launched their new website, bringing an exciting online presence to the workforce development industry. With many months of hard work and collaboration behind the scenes, ISA is thrilled to unveil an improved website that reflects its brand and values as a Jobs and Skills Council (JSC).
As the importance of workforce development continues to grow, ISA recognises the significance of a future-ready and agile workforce with transferable skills. To facilitate greater workforce mobility and increased efficiency across the transport, logistics, aviation, maritime, and rail industries, ISA’s new website has been completely revamped with a fresh design, updated content, and enhanced functionality to provide an optimal user experience for all stakeholders.
One of the most significant changes is the new brand identity, which embodies ISA’s ‘people first’ approach. The new logo, colour scheme, and visual elements are featured prominently throughout the site, standing out in the market and making a lasting impression on stakeholders. The new identity reflects ISA’s commitment to working closely with the transport and logistics industry to develop its workforce and harness the jobs and opportunities of the future.
ISA’s new tagline, ‘People first, for a future-fit supply chain workforce,’ signifies their dedication to prioritising people and their needs in the workforce development process. With the new website launch, ISA is confident it can better communicate its vision and offerings, making it easier for stakeholders to access the necessary information.

Industry Skills Australia is the New Australian Industry Standards
Australian Industry Standards (AIS) has undergone a rebrand and is now Industry Skills Australia (ISA). The organisation is preparing for significant changes to the national training system and is creating one of the new Jobs and Skills Councils.
This council will work closely with the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR), Jobs and Skills Australia (JSA), industry, and key stakeholders to address the nation’s workforce planning and skills development challenges.
Main functions of Industry Skills Australia (ISA)
One of the main focuses of ISA is to lead and drive workforce development planning and skills development for the Transport and Logistics (Road, Rail, Aviation, and Maritime), Omnichannel Logistics, and Space Transport industries.
“The resilience and strength of our nation’s supply chains are crucial to how we fare as a society and how quickly our economy rebounds and grows,” says Laurie D’Apice, AIS Chair and Linfox President of Human Resources.
“Led by industry, our model brings together leaders from across Australia’s core supply chain sectors with the goal of building a world-class, resilient, and agile supply chain workforce.”
ISA Responsibilities as a Jobs and Skills Council
As a Jobs and Skills Council, ISA has a broad range of responsibilities, including:
- Assessing and forecasting the current and future skills needs of the industry and creating national workforce development plans
- Improving the quality, innovation, and speed to market of training products
- Developing and implementing solutions, promoting career pathways, and monitoring the effectiveness of training delivery
- Industry stewardship to give the industry a robust and evidentiary-based voice on issues affecting their industries and to provide advice on VET system policies to ensure they are fit for purpose.
The Jobs and Skills Councils will be established in January 2023 and will be in place for all major sectors of the economy.
With the new Jobs and Skills Councils in place, the future of the Australian workforce looks positive. By addressing the industry’s current and future skills needs and fostering collaboration among industry leaders, we can build a well-prepared workforce to meet the challenges of the future.
