A federal government supported initiative, National Skills Week 2022 will be held again this year from August 22 to 28, designed to inspire Australians to explore the myriad of rewarding and worthwhile careers that can be pursued through Vocational Education and Training (VET).
Held annually, the purpose of National Skills Week is to raise awareness on the diversity of career pathways which can be realised through vocational education and training, as well as highlight the greatest skills shortages across industries and the jobs and skills most in demand for the future.
According to a report by the National Skills Commission – The Future of Work in Australia, found “the Covid-19 pandemic has caused large-scale disruption to Australian businesses, workplaces and jobs. Even as the Australian economy recovers, we are likely to see more workforce transitions due to increased digitisation, technological adoption and ongoing structural changes. In these times of global uncertainty and change, skills are key”.
