On 13 December 2022, the Hon Brendan O’Connor MP, the Minister for Skills and Training, announced the outcomes of the Stage One Grant Opportunity and the formation of 10 Jobs and Skills Councils.

These Jobs and Skills Councils (JSCs), formerly known as Industry Clusters, are being established to provide industry with a stronger, more strategic voice in ensuring Australia’s VET sector delivers stronger outcomes for learners and employers.

JSCs will identify skills and workforce needs for their sectors, map career pathways across education sectors, develop VET training products, support collaboration between industry and training providers to improve training and assessment practice and act as a source of intelligence on issues affecting their industries.

More information on JSCs is available.
