The Industry Skills Fund is a growth initiative that has been designed to encourage investment in training so that Australian businesses will be better prepared to diversify into new markets, adopt new technologies, enter export markets and create more jobs. The fund is targeting businesses, which are preparing to take up growth opportunities outside of their normal day-to-day business operations.
Supporting the initiative we have a group of independent Skills Advisers working on behalf of the Australian Government who work with eligible businesses to help them understand growth opportunities, and to identify the skills and training they need to increase competitiveness. The skills advice is provided free of charge to businesses eligible under the fund.
Shani Doyle is a Skills Advisor with the Australian Industry Group.
