Description

ITABs are autonomous, industry based bodies that represent their industries on training and related matters to support the vocational education and training system. There are 11 ITABs, with each covering specific industry groups.

ITABs have established industry networks and support to enable them to fulfil their contracted roles and responsibilities.


Purpose

NSW ITABs are a key source of industry advice for the NSW Government. ITABs provide streamlined, unique and timely advice to the Department on the training and skill needs of their NSW industry sectors to facilitate workforce development.

ITABs work collaboratively with other relevant state, territory and commonwealth stakeholders in the sharing of information on industry training and skills needs in New South Wales.


Services they provide

  • promote training to industry and provide brokerage services to assist in the take-up of funded training, including school based apprenticeships and traineeships, in collaboration with Training Services NSW
  • advise the Department on apprenticeship and traineeship arrangements in New South Wales including school based arrangements and the establishment of Vocational Training Orders
  • advise on the development, review and implementation of Training Packages / Training Products
