National Jobs and Skills Council launches in Hobart: Tasmania pivotal to nation's skills challenge'.

Industry Skills Australia (ISA), the newly created Jobs and Skills Council for Australia’s transport and logistics industries has officially launched in Hobart today.

ISA will be seeking to gather the perspectives of Tasmanian industry to inform the National Workforce Development Plans, which will be released in March 2024.

Owned and led by industry, ISA’s scope covers transport and logistics (road, rail, aviation and maritime), omnichannel logistics, and space transport industries. Its role is to bring together employers, unions, educators, and industry leaders to identify the skills needed by industry and to develop training solutions to meet those needs. Read more

Solving the Challenges Together

As the new Jobs and Skills Council for the nation's transport and logistics sectors, we will be bringing together business leaders, unions, governments, industry organisations and training providers to understand the real issues and collaborate on high impact solutions.

We’re committed to building a world class supply chain workforce to lift the nation’s productivity and create better jobs and careers for Australians. To secure this future we’ll need to tackle many challenges.

Whether its finding ways of getting more skilled truck drivers into the cabs of trucks to keep Australia’s supply chains moving.

Or sourcing a workforce to ensure the $155 billion pipeline of rail projects can be built and operated safely. Or building a strategic fleet to enhance our sovereign maritime capability and creating jobs for Australian seafarers.

Or figuring out how we ensure new workers are skilled to meet the challenges of increasing demand for aviation services. Or building the workforce for our emerging space transport and omni-channel logistics sectors which are both set for strong growth this decade.

Great ideas to address these challenges and many more can come from anyone and anywhere. Whether you’d like to collaborate with us, share your ideas, get involved in our activities or simply stay informed, get in touch now to join us on the journey.
