What is the National Industry Insights Report?

The AISC National Industry Insights Report is a collection of information, data and insights focused both on individual industry sectors, and at a cross-industry level.  It captures information about skills, training, employment, and the labour market. 

The resource supports Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) to ensure the design and development of training packages meets the current and future skills needs of industry. It also includes a National Overview.

The website has been developed for the AISC by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research.
