For the first time in Australia, the new Australian Skills Classification provides a connection between labour market analysis and skills needs.
This will assist the National Skills Commission (NSC) in identifying workforce skills gaps, up-skilling or transition pathways, business diversification opportunities, and influencing training package design. Rather than using occupations and qualifications as proxies for skills, the Australian Skills Classification offers a new way of identifying the range of skills linked to occupations. The BETA version recently released includes skills profiles for 600 occupations.
