Future Skilling Australia's Workforce
Australian Industry Standards (AIS) is focused on future skilling Australia’s workforce. Working in partnership with industry, the vocational education and training sector and government, we aim to further Australia’s prosperity and competitiveness through life-long learning of Australian’s.
We are passionate about transforming careers through the power of skills. We draw on our world-class, in-house technical expertise – built over 20 years – and extensive industry networks throughout Australia, to deliver solutions for industry. We undertake research and data analysis to inform intelligence modelling; develop priority training package products, as well as skills and workforce development resources, training and strategies nationally and across the globe.
AIS is future-focused and agile, committed to continuous improvement and innovation. We are an independent, not-for-profit company supporting industry and government to solve the emerging and future skills challenges facing Australia’s businesses.
Respect, honesty, accountability and the highest professional standards are the foundations of our success.
Our work as a Skills Service Organisation
AIS is appointed by the Australian Government as a Skills Service Organisation (SSO) to support 11 Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) to develop contemporary, future-focused qualifications that create career pathways supporting industry growth and productivity.
We do this by providing high quality secretariat support and capability for industry engagement, research and analysis, project management and communications to produce world-class training products.
SSOs support industry engagement while remaining independent from both industry and the training sector.
As an SSO we:
- facilitate engagement across industry and the training sector
- facilitate the development of Training Packages for consideration by the relevant IRC
- provide project management, information management, operational and secretariat support to our IRCs
- provide technical writing skills to support our IRCs in preparing technical specifications for Training Packages and other products
- manage the Training Packages through the endorsement process on behalf of our IRCs.
We collaborate with industry and the VET sector to develop priority Training Package products
We conduct research and data analysis in partnership with industry and Government
