Jobs and Skills Councils

Jobs and Skills Councils have been established and funded by the Australian Government (managed by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations) to provide the industry with a stronger, more strategic voice in ensuring Australia’s VET sector delivers stronger outcomes for learners and employers.

Collaborating through councils

Ten industry-based groups have been identified across different sectors, with Powering Skills Organisation (PSO) appointed in the Energy, Gas and Renewables sectors. The JSCs initiative is an exciting step towards ensuring Australia's future workforce has the skills that they need for this country’s industries to continue to grow rapidly.
