Skills Insight, one of the established Jobs and Skills Councils (JSC), has announced the formation of its membership base and stakeholder network. The network will guide Skills Insight’s work and ensure it reflects the full breadth of industry coverage.
Building on the solid foundation of Skills Impact’s team, values, and infrastructure, Skills Insight is equipping itself with the capabilities to deliver a broader range of outcomes and functions. To achieve this, the team has been working closely with Leon Design, a First Nations-owned creative consultancy, to devise the look and feel of Skills Insight.
Skills Insight’s new design is about collaboration and finding solutions to enhance vocational education and training (VET) outcomes. Through a website that will be launched soon, industry leaders, stakeholders, and the public can easily access information about Skills Insight, the JSC program, and the opportunities that come with it.
Membership Base and Stakeholder Network
The membership base and stakeholder network will comprise representatives from various industries, training organizations, and other stakeholders interested in the sectors Skills Insight covers and VET. Additionally, industry leaders will form a formal Stakeholder Representative Forum to make decisions on JSC work outcomes and be a vital industry voice.
New Industries Added to Skills Insight
Skills Insight will cover the same industries as Skills Impact, with the addition of textiles, clothing, footwear, and furnishing. The said industries play a crucial role in the value chain, turning raw materials into necessary daily items for homes, clothing, and enrichment. Skills Insight is keen to know new stakeholders from these newly allocated industry sectors.
JSC Onboarding Forum
Skills Insight’s team recently attended the JSCs Onboarding Forum hosted by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations. The meeting provided details on plans for the JSC program and government expectations, including an address from the Minister for Skills and Training, Brendan O’Connor.
Skills Insight is building on Skills Impact’s strong foundation of people, values, and infrastructure. The team is working with Leon Design, a First Nations-owned creative consultancy, to devise the look and feel of Skills Insight, reflecting the company’s ethos of collaboration.
