Hiring the people you need to succeed
Discover the changes that will give you the well trained, work ready team members you need – now and in the future.
We’re creating a stronger, more cohesive, and sustainable system of vocational education and training that will create a workforce fit for today’s needs and tomorrow’s expectations.
The journey will take time for providers to develop the capability to support work-based training – keep talking to your Industry Training Organisation for your training needs while we work through the transition.
The changes will give employers more of a leadership role in training, including developing qualifications and setting standards – stay up to date with Workforce Development Councils .
