Digital Transformation

Designing skill prioritised and responsive qualifications

The objective of this project was to build speed to market, and responsiveness to address issues around the identification, and prioritisation of skills needs. 

This project was undertaken under the Mining Skills Organisation Pilot (MSOP), in partnership with the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) and funded by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR).

The Digital Transformation Project Hub focused on closing the gap between the creation of new technologies and developing workers’ skills to apply them - increasing the speed to market of new training products to enable the faster adoption of new technology.  

A paper was developed to identify and prioritise new digital and technology content in training packages, informed by desktop research, and industry consultation, and tested with organisations in the innovation community.  

The paper focused on the skills pipeline, identifying and forecasting the future skills needs of industry based on how and when emerging technologies might impact the workforce.  

It looked at strengthening the relationship between Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Australia’s innovation sector, and redefining the role and importance of VET in workforce development.

Skilling an industry to meet emerging technologies means having faster speed to market updates of accredited courses.

Key outcomes of the work

The Project Hub looked at enhancing the speed to market of training products through a model for migrating existing and new accredited content into national training packages, to accelerate training system responses to identified digital/technology-based skills.
