Historic training demand analyses and industry forums

Training Demand Analyses or Training Demand Profiles (TDPs) can be used as a tool for influencing decisions about resource allocation and training delivery.  They include specific information for individual Tasmanian industry sectors on:

  • Skills shortages
  • Demand for training from industry and the drivers of training demand
  • Workforce and labour market issues
  • Quantified demand for VET qualifications from the Government system

TDPs present industry views on skills and training issues and identify current and emerging issues that impact on the provision and funding of VET for Tasmania industry sectors.  They record demand by industry for training that can be provided by the Government system.

Regional Profiles are different but complementary to TDPs as they provide demographic, labour market, industry, business and infrastructure information about a cluster of Local Government Areas (LGAs).  They can also be used as a tool for influencing decisions about resource allocation and training delivery.
Training Demand Profiles and Regional Profiles have been developed through contracting independent industry advice.  The process seeks feedback from stakeholders across the industry and regions, including peak bodies, employers and RTOs.

Note that the information, views and recommendations in the following documents have been obtained under contract from industry sources as part of Industry Advisory Arrangements; they may include data or information which have not been otherwise verified, and they should not be interpreted as being the views, intentions or policy of Skills Tasmania or the Tasmanian Government.  Reference material may include links to external web pages or documents that may no longer be active.

Industry forums

The success of Australia?s VET system relies on communication between the system?s main stakeholders - industry (employers and employees), registered training organisations (RTOs) and other VET service providers and the government. The system is designed to provide the training that our workplaces need to maintain and improve our global competitiveness.

These forums are designed to give industry a gateway into identifying skills and training needs. To date five forums have been conducted.
