The online Defence Industry skilling survey is now open

The Department of Defence is conducting an online defence industry skilling survey to gather sectoral data about defence industry skills and workforce issues.

The individual responses will be aggregated and the data will be used to inform the development of a Defence Industry Skilling and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Strategy.

The Strategy will help to support our defence industry workforce and skills base to meet Defence’s capability needs over the next decade.

Why should you participate in this survey?

Providing feedback to this anonymous survey will help ensure that a robust and successful Defence Industry Skilling and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Strategy is developed. The Strategy will help build an appropriately skilled Australian workforce pool in the near to medium future.

A skilled and accessible Australian workforce will be fundamental to Australian businesses being able to participate in contracts to support the $200 billion investment in Defence capability over the next decade.


ISACNT Engagment with NT Businesses

ISACNT requests the support of local NT businesses to engage with this important Department of Defence skilling survey.  Contributions received from NT Industry will continue to assist in the development of important Defence Industry workforce skills analysis.

ISACNT continues to actively engage all key stakeholders in the NT. Preparations for the 2019 NT Skilled Occupation List are well underway with opportunities for NT Business to provide feedback to ISACNT until November 2018.  This input will enable ISACNT to inform the NTGovernment and industry about critical occupational shortfalls in the NT labour force which will then flow to training investment.

The current NT Skilled Occupation Priority List  is published on the NT Government website.

To talk about jobs in demand, skills shortages or to discuss training and skilling options in the NT please contact Stephen Goodall
