Human Services Skills Organisation Pilot

The Australian Government has established a Skills Organisation pilot for the human services sector.

On this page:


The HSSO Pilot will trial new ways to shape the national training system to be more responsive to the skills needs within the sector – from the identification of skills needs and qualifications development, through to improving the quality of training delivery and assessment.

The HSSO is one of 3 Skills Organisation pilots that will inform broader improvements to the national training system. The Government has also announced pilots in the digital and mining sectors.

The HSSO was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee in August 2020.
