Education and Training Advisers

The Industry Training Strategies Programme helps Australian industries and employers develop a better understanding of the national vocational education and training (VET) system. In particular it promotes the benefits of employing Australian apprentices and the use of training packages to meet business skills development needs.

Under this programme Education and Training Advisers work directly with employers and businesses to provide skills and training advice and to encourage them to access the national VET system and apprenticeships.

A network of Education and Training Advisers across all states and territories operates through three peak industry associations: the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Australian Industry Group and Rural Skills Australia.

The key function of this programme is to work through peak industry associations to increase members’ understanding of vocational education and training issues, particularly the National Training Framework, Australian Apprenticeships and training packages to promote and facilitate the access and take up of training.
