Key Issues Paper Released

To download your copy of the Key Issues Paper, please click here. The purpose of this paper is to provide stakeholders with a summary of the key themes and issues that have been identified so far by the study and to verify their accuracy.  The contents of this paper are drawn from industry consultations and other research activities completed by TLISC during October – December 2015.

These activities are part of the Aviation Workforce Skills Study (AWSS), work undertaken by TLISC on behalf of the Commonwealth’s Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development. The AWSS is a study into the state of the aviation workforce in Australia which seeks to identify the industry’s workforce and skill needs, as well as the actions that can be taken by industry to meet those needs.

This study responds to the need, recognised by industry and government alike, to support the effective, safe growth of the aviation sector in Australia. The sector is under tremendous pressure to adapt in a very dynamic environment with a rapidly growing cargo and passenger traffic, stringent regulations, and fast-paced technology innovation. As such, the availability of skilled and trained staff is crucial to the ongoing viability of our aviation industry.
