2014 TLISC Environmental Scan – Have your say

Ahead of the 2014 Transport and Logistics Environmental Scan (E-Scan) release in February next year the Skills Council has released the E-Scan Key Findings Discussion Paper. Stakeholders are invited to comment on the Paper which summarises core outcomes from the 2014 E-Scan industry consultation process.

The Discussion Paper focuses on the drivers of change and emerging trends, challenges facing skills and workforce development, as well as highlighting opportunities for moving forward. It also outlines key findings relating to skills and labour shortages in the Transport and Logistics industry sectors.

Interested stakeholders are invited to provide comment on any of the findings outlined in this document by COB Monday 20 January 2014.

The Discussion Paper can be downloaded from here.


It’s that time of the year again when the Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC) prepares for its annual Environmental Scan (E-Scan).

Every year TLISC undertakes an analysis of industry trends and gathers intelligence on the skill needs of the current and future transport and logistics workforce.

This is conducted over a short but intense time period and relies on ‘real time’ evidence captured across all industry sectors.

The Skills Council will use the information gathered through this process to develop the 2014 Transport and Logistics Environmental Scan (E-Scan) which will be released in April 2014.

The E-Scan provides contemporary and projected advice on the condition of the Transport and Logistics sectors, their workforce planning and development needs and projected demand on the national training system over the next 12 months. It acts as an early warning system for the Transport and Logistics Industry, government and the national training system about potentially significant issues at product, operational and systemic level.

We are inviting all interested stakeholders to provide input in a number of ways:

  • Make a submission via our ‘Call for Submissions’ flyer
  • Take part in our online E-Scan surveys

Call for Submissions

There are various ways in which you can provide a Submission:

  1. Complete the Call for Submissions template, save it as a Word document and email it to research@tlisc.org.au
  2. Send TLISC key documents or reports for consideration
  3. Send TLISC an email with your input related to skills and workforce development and the national training system to research@tlisc.org.au

Submissions are open now and will close on Friday 18 October 2013.

E-Scan Surveys

We are inviting all interested stakeholders to complete one or more of the following surveys to assist in this process:

survey1. survey2. survey3.

The surveys can be found by clicking the buttons above and will only take 5-10 minutes to complete.

The surveys close on Monday 28 October 2013.

After completing either of the surveys you will have the opportunity to enter the prize draw to win one of ten $50 fuel gift cards. The winners will be notified by email and published on the TLISC website.

Why your input counts

Completing a survey or Call for Submission is a valuable opportunity to contribute to identified national policy priorities involving Transport and Logistics skills and workforce development. Your input ensures that the content of the 2014 E-Scan is accurate and relevant, and that the Skills Council can provide high quality advice on behalf of the Industry.

The 2014 TLISC Environmental Scan will be released in April 2014.
