Delivering the right skills for the jobs of today and tomorrow
Action 11: Drive for higher skills and progression through education and training
Since the release of the Victorian Skills Plan 2022, the Victorian Skills Authority (VSA) has also worked with the national skills body, Jobs and Skills Australia, and the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations to progress reforms in the skills and training system.
Federated Industry Skills Network
The VSA is also playing a leading role in driving the development of the Federated Industry Skills Network (FISN).
FISN is a platform for information-sharing and developing communities of best-practice, as well as an opportunity for states and territories to co-ordinate advocacy to the Australian Government on key skills issues, including those that underpin actions eight and 11.
FISN acknowledges the importance of connection and engagement, as well as the rich insights that can be gained from collaborative efforts across states and territories. It coordinates industry advice, advocacy, research and practice to support the work of the Jobs and Skills Councils and brings a shared approach to national training package review and development.
