Skills IQ

Skills IQ

We are a not-for-profit, independent organisation, which supports skills and workforce development in the service industries.

Our industries include retail and wholesale, sport, fitness, community recreation, outdoor recreation, travel, tourism, meetings and events, hospitality, accommodation, restaurants and catering, holiday parks and resorts, hairdressing, beauty, floristry, community pharmacy and funeral services.

Our primary aim when developing nationally recognised training is to ensure that training is in step with the needs of employers and industry as a whole. To achieve this, we consult and engage with as broad a range of stakeholders as possible. Our key stakeholder groups are: industry, both representative organisations and individual businesses; training professionals, including registered training organisations and trainers/assessors; industry regulators; and a range of state/territory and federal government bodies.

Environmental Scan 2015 – Outdoor Recreation

Environmental Scans analyse existing and emerging trends in the service industries, focusing on their implications for workforce development. They form a key piece of advice to the government on skill shortages, broader workforce development needs and the context for the continuous improvement of training packages.
