On Thursday, 24 November 2022, David Turvey, First Assistant Secretary, Jobs and Skills Australia presented at the TEQSA 2022 6th annual conference on Australia’s current, emerging and future workforce skills needs.

Mr Turvey provided an update on Jobs and Skills Australia, an overview of the work of the agency, and the findings to-date from this work.

Some of these key findings include:

  • there has been a big jump in shortages for professionals but shortages of trades workers are persistent
  • persistent shortages are being exacerbated by a gender skewed workforce
  • skills in care, computing, cognitive ability, communication and climate are likely to be most important going forward.
