Submissions close 9 October 2020.
The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has established the Digital Transformation Expert Panel to:
‘… provide advice on how Australia’s VET system can most effectively respond to digital change underway across industry and its impact on the nation’s workforce’.
The Panel has approached this work through the lens of the existing workforce and its need to upskill and reskill in response to the digital transformation of industry.
The Panel’s work is divided into two phases. The first involved a suite of research and analysis activities that included looking at how leading economies and their training systems are approaching the same challenge. The second phase is currently underway and involves consultation and engagement with a wide range of bodies in Australia and circulation of a discussion paper for public comment.
The Panel will submit its Digital Transformation Skills Strategy to the AISC for consideration at the end of 2020.
A discussion paper has been released designed to give stakeholders the opportunity to provide their views and insights into five key areas of focus identified by the Panel:
- Training products
- Teaching and learning
- Learner support mechanisms
- Industry leadership
- System settings
All responses to the discussion paper must be submitted using the online version of the paper by close of business 9 October 2020.
