The National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) has completed a study exploring the current digital skills demand and supply situation in Australia’s workforce. The research investigated the skills impact of digitalisation on two industry sectors – transport and logistics, and public safety and correctional services, as well as the wider workforce.
The research culminated in a proposed Australian workplace digital skills framework to help identify digital skills gaps among Australian industries and workforces to enable the development of appropriate training programs.
The report Skilling the Australian workforce for the digital economy recommends that employers do more to prepare for the digital future of work or risk being left behind.
