Digital Skills Organisation Pilot

The Australian Government has established a Skills Organisation pilot for the digital technology sector.

On this page:


The DSO will shape the national training system, testing innovative solutions to ensure that digital training meets the skills needs of employers and builds Australia’s digital workforce. It will work on identifying skills needs, developing agile qualifications, and improving the quality of training delivery and assessment to provide a competitive edge needed in the global market. 

The DSO is one of three industry-led Skills Organisation pilots designed to inform broader improvements to the national training system. They are also underway in the human services care and mining sectors. The pilots are engaging with other reforms across the national training system including the National Skills Commission and the National Careers Institute as needed.

The DSO was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee in June 2020.
