The transport and logistics industry is undergoing a period of transformational change, and as a result is facing changing workforce challenges including skills shortages. The road transport industry is taking a proactive approach to ensure a skilled, sustainable and supported workforce into the future.
VET 4 T&L is a Vocation, Education and Training (VET) valued program which further strengthens the Department's connection with industry and its understanding of future skilling priorities and vocational education and training opportunities.
We have established industry working groups and are looking for more interested businesses and stakeholders to be involved in providing feedback on training and skills for the following sectors:
How can you help?
