Jobs and Skills Australia

Jobs and Skills Australia

The Australian Government has introduced legislation to establish an interim Jobs and Skills Australia, a statutory body to provide independent advice on current, emerging, and future workforce, skills, and training needs.

Jobs and Skills Australia will build on the work started by the National Skills Commission. The proposed broader remit includes a focus on workforce planning and developing closer partnerships with state and territory governments, unions, industry, and education providers.

A period of consultation will soon commence on the permanent model for Jobs and Skills Australia, including as part of September’s Jobs and Skills Summit.

We will continue to provide updates on the implementation and consultation period of Jobs and Skills Australia and look forward to working with you and your networks to ensure we deliver the best advice to inform Australia’s skills system.

For more information please see the media release by Minister for Skills and Training the Hon Brendan O'Connor MP.
