In 2015 there will be significant reforms implemented to improve the VET system in Australia. Submissions to the Industry Engagement in Training Package Development – Towards a Contestable Model Discussion Paper close on Christmas Eve. TLISC welcomes the opportunity to participate in this process and encourages our stakeholders to make their own submissions. It is important that Industry’s voice is heard if these reforms are to deliver the best possible outcomes for the Transport and Logistics Industry.
The Government is keen to receive views and suggestions about contestable approaches to the development of Training Packages which guide industry-directed vocational education and training in Australia. You can access the discussion paper and make your submission here.
Efficient supply chains are the lifeline of our economy as they underpin the success of all industry sectors. TLISC is committed to supporting productivity growth in the Transport and Logistics Industry through initiatives to develop workforce skills to ensure long-term industry growth projections are achieved. Achieving these goals requires a high quality and efficient national VET system.
Delivering the anticipated returns of increased investment in infrastructure, a key national priority outlined on many occasions by the Prime Minister, is dependent on having a capable workforce to operate the infrastructure. It is essential the Transport and Logistics Industry continues to invest in workforce development to ensure that our industry is high performing, thereby ensuring efficient and competitive market conditions for Australian companies to do business with our trading partners.
As many of you are aware TLISC was formed as an industry body in 1995 and we have been developing national qualifications and competency standards (Training Packages) for 19 years. We are reliant on the depth of our stakeholder networks; it is through this engagement and the expertise of our staff we can say with confidence that TLISC has a proven track record of delivering unbiased, industry validated, fit-for-purpose outcomes across all Transport and Logistics sectors.
TLISC has a demonstrated capability to engage with our stakeholders to gather frontline industry intelligence, to identify workforce development priorities and gain expert industry input into the development or review of qualifications to meet new and emerging occupational skilling needs.
Best wishes for the holidays and for health and happiness throughout the coming year. I would like to extend my appreciation to our Industry Stakeholders for their ongoing support and contribution to TLISC in 2014.
