Workforce Development

The AIS Global team works at the enterprise, industry and government level (domestically and internationally) to develop workforce development strategies and programs. Our focus is on capability building that enables our clients to build on the support provided. Developing a ‘future skilled workforce’, at a micro or macro level, recognises the role that skills play in the economic development of an enterprise, industry or country. View Case Study

Research and Analysis

AIS Global draws on the capability of in-house data and systems and technical specialists to build tailored intelligence-gathering frameworks, undertake qualitative and quantitative research and develop industry intelligence to support decision making. AIS produces an annual Skills Forecast for 11 important sectors. These reports are developed and submitted on behalf of an Industry Reference Committee (IRC) to the Australian Industry Skills Committee (AISC) and focus on prioritisation of skills needs. AISG can work with our clients to identify their data and intelligence requirements and build an appropriate framework to support evidence-based decision making and workforce development.

Occupational Standards Development

Occupational Standards (OS) and their associated Occupational Skills Standards (OSS) are the standards against which training delivery and assessment of competency can take place. In Australia, they are developed through a process of national consultation with industry. AISG is working globally to develop OS/OSS to facilitate mutual recognition of skills and support a skills mobility agenda within and across borders. View Case Study

Technical Review and Product Development

With access to a team of technical and industry specialists, AIS Global can review and develop training package products such as assessment instruments, guides for assessors and other material. Our technical specialists work closely with RTOs, while having access to national training products and standards. View Case Study

Strategic and Operational Advice

AIS Global are experts in VET and industry engagement, in Australia and globally. Our team of specialists have developed strategic frameworks, discussion and options papers, and provided face-to-face guidance and mentoring at the enterprise, industry and government level. We do not merely seek to replicate Australia’s model when engaging with our international clients, but instead take an individual needs-based approach to develop solutions around governance, VET frameworks, resource development and stakeholder engagement. We ensure that our strategic and operational advice is focused on capability building.
