What we do 

We work with industry, providers and the community on vocational education and training.   
This gives people practical skills and knowledge for the workplace. It can help people entering the workforce for the first time, improving their skills, or developing a new career.   
We provide funding, guidance and support for programs. This, in turn, supports economic, regional and community development.

  • planning and advice.  

This includes: 

  • managing training provider contracts
