Skills Forecast 2018

Skills Forecast 2018


What is a Skills Forecast?

The Industry Reference Committee (IRC) Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work (Skills Forecast) identifies proposed Vocational Education and Training (VET) training package development work necessary to meet the needs of industry and sets out the evidence of that need. The Australian Industry and Skills Commission (AISC) considers this information in prioritising and commissioning training package development work.
Artibus Innovation is required to produce a Skills Forecast annually for each training package we provide services for:
  • Property Services (CPP)
  • Construction, Plumbing and Services (CPC)
A key component of the Skills Forecast research is stakeholder consultation in the form of surveys and submissions.

Who can provide feedback?

We are seeking feedback from the following four stakeholder groups:
  • Learners (students, apprentices, qualified employees)
  • Employers
  • RTOs
  • Regulatory bodies/Licensing Authorities

Have your say

We are currently seeking feedback from all stakeholders on industry outlook, new and emerging skills and associated training needs.


There are two surveys, one for each training package, that allow you to provide feedback on issues and trends that affect your industry. The survey can be completed online and should take no more than ten minutes. We encourage involvement before March 2nd, 2018 and ask that you share this with your networks.

Submissions are a chance for you to provide detailed, targeted feedback and potential solutions to help us prioritise projects accordingly. There is also the opportunity to submit research or other relevant reports or documents that offer insight into your industry.

We look forward to hearing from you, your feedback is greatly valued!
