Review of industry advisory arrangements in New South Wales

In 2016, the NSW Department of Industry contracted Ithaca Group to review industry advisory arrangements in New South Wales. Download the Final Report [pdf 198KB].


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 fulfill 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
