Australian Industry and Skills Committee – Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) Review

The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) is progressively reviewing the structure and membership of each IRC and is keen to hear your views about the IRC that is best placed to represent your industry. You can register via the AISC website to receive updates on the progress of the review of a particular IRC.

Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) advise the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) on changing skills needs in their industry and the priorities for the review and update of vocational education and training (VET) qualifications. It is important that each IRC is broadly representative of its industry sector and undertakes extensive consultation to ensure their work represents a whole-of-industry view.
The AISC welcomes your involvement in the establishment of your IRC. The right IRC will give your industry a strong voice in the training of your future workforce. Currently, the proposed structure for the Financial Services IRC is open for comments to 25 July 2016.

Information on how to be part of this new consultative approach, through the IRCs, is available on the AISC website.

There are a number of ways you can participate in the review of your IRC. As each IRC is reviewed, a draft structure is published for comment on the AISC website. This will ensure that the structure will best represent the needs of that industry.
