Cross Sector Projects

PwC's Skills for Australia is leading the development of training in three cross-sector skills: Cyber Security, Big Data and Teamwork and Communication.

Many of the skills most valued by industry cut across multiple sectors of Australia’s economy. However, training package components are not always developed in a way that recognises the importance of skills in multiple sectors or encourages training products to be used to their full potential in various industry contexts.

The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has identified eight cross-sector skills areas where opportunities exist to create flexible and transferable training package components that will benefit industry, learners and the broader VET sector. These cross-sector skills are all at the forefront of growth and innovation in Australia.

Our experience as a professional services firm provides us with relevant subject matter expertise, and our operation as a Skills Service Organisation provides us with the essential experience needed to navigate the complexities of developing cross-sector training package components.

We are excited about the opportunity to increase flexibility and efficiency in Australia’s VET system, and look forward to collaborating with the AISC, the Department of Education and Training, Industry Reference Committees, Skills Service Organisations and other stakeholders in pursuit of this worthwhile objective.
