What we do
The National Skills Commission (NSC) provides expert advice and national leadership on Australia’s labour market and current, emerging and future workforce skills needs. We also have an important role in simplifying and strengthening Australia’s Vocational Education and Training (VET) system. Learn more.
Australian Skills Classification
Explore the Australian Skills Classification (ASC) to see the different skills applied in different occupations and which occupations share similar skills. Each occupation consists of specialist skills, technology tools and core competencies. The ASC demonstrates connections and transferability of skills between jobs.
Nowcast of Employment by Region and Occupation
The Nowcast of Employment by Region and Occupation (NERO) is an experimental dataset providing timely information on employment in 355 occupations across 88 Australian regions. You can search NERO by occupation or region, and download the data.
State of Australia's Skills
The shape of Australia’s workforce is changing as our labour market responds to forces such as an ongoing shift to services and higher skilled jobs, advances in technology and growing automation. Read more in the NSC's inaugural report - the State of Australia's Skills 2021.
