Strengthening industry voice

A revitalised Training and Skills Commission will provide industry with a strengthened voice by establishing eight new Industry Skills Councils.

South Australia’s Industry Skills Councils (ISCs) will shape South Australia’s future workforce by providing critical advice on priorities around skills, training and workforce development.

The initiative is part of the State Government’s broad reforms to rebuild South Australia’s training system, as listening to the needs of industry will be critical in ensuring South Australia is able to take advantage of the opportunities coming our way, particularly in growth industries such as Defence, space, cyber-security, health and disability.


Chairs have been appointed for each ISC and expressions of interest were received from industry, businesses, peak bodies and the public for members representing the following industry sectors:


  • Agribusiness

  • Construction, Mining & Energy

  • Defence, Aerospace, IT & Cybersecurity

  • Health, Disability, Aged Care & Community Services

  • Transport & Manufacturing

  • Education & Service Sector

  • Creative Industries, Business & Digital Platforms

  • Food, Wine, Tourism & Hospitality
