4.1 Next steps

The NSC introduced the Australian Skills Classification in its July 2020 report, A snapshot in time: The Australian labour market and COVID-19. This report included a chart outlining the level of competency required for core competencies within the 10 largest employing occupations in Australia.

Following the release of that report, the NSC received feedback about the core competencies for registered nurses. We engaged with select peak bodies, including the Council of Deans of Nursing and Midwifery, to gain vital feedback to improve our occupation profiles for Registered Nursing occupations in the Australian labour market. We are continuing to engage with peak bodies to further improve our profiles and to obtain more comprehensive data and feedback.

The NSC is now seeking feedback on the beta release of the Australian Skills Classification. We welcome engagement on all aspects of the Classification.
