“The key roles of the national training system are to drive economic growth and address areas of skills needs.”
(DEEWR Website, May 2011)
The Skills Institute is the prototype 21st century training organisation, with the mandate and business model to help support this goal. The Skills Institute was formed at the beginning of 2009 with the clear purpose of workforce skills development.
As a business-to-business training provider, the Skills Institute has evolved from the traditional TAFE model to an integrated partner with industry, identifying and providing training opportunities based on quantifiable demand.
Relationships are pivotal in this model, and it is our direct contact with industry – through consultation with peak industry bodies and the direct training undertaken in workplaces in partnership with employers – that ensures that our training products and services are aligned to industry needs.
