The Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business is undertaking a Review of the Australian Apprenticeships National Skills Needs List with a view to advising the Government on the methodology for identifying skills shortage occupations and the inaugural composition of the replacement list.
To assist this process, the Department is seeking input from industry and employer groups, and other interested stakeholders, through a two-stage consultation process.
In this first round of consultation the Department is seeking input on the broad design principles that should underpin a methodology for identifying skills shortages for the purpose of targeting apprenticeship incentives. A second round of consultation will occur later this year, seeking comment on the proposed design of the replacement skills shortage methodology
