Skills Insight is a not-for-profit, government funded, industry-led organisation and one of ten Jobs and Skills Councils (JSCs).

We work with stakeholders who share a passion for improving skills and training across the agribusiness, fibre, furnishing, food, animal and environment care industries.

We support the voice of industry in the Australian skills and VET systems.


We will have a constructive and significant role in Australia’s industry-focused vocational skills and learning system; a system that is widely recognised for delivering excellence for learners and industry.


  • Skills Insight, as a Jobs and Skills Council, will carry out research on skill needs, challenges, and solutions with the aim of better understanding ways to develop skilled workers as and where they are needed in our sectors and will facilitate an informed voice of industry on these issues.
  • We will work with all stakeholders to understand the diversity of needs, challenges, and potential solutions. We will deliver contracted outcomes to support Australia’s skills system, while studying, testing, and piloting known and novel responses. We will openly and accurately evaluate and report on outcomes.


We will work with you in a way that is open, transparent, trustworthy, collaborative and respectful.

We will always consider ways to be adaptable, flexible, inquisitive, dedicated, conscientious and accountable.


Skills Insight was created by Skills Impact, with the support of a broad range of industry stakeholders. Skills Impact held a Skills Service Organisation contract with the Commonwealth Government from 2016-2022. A submission to move into the role of a Jobs and Skills Council, as Skills Insight, received over 200 letters of industry support as well as the support of Skills Impact’s Members, the National Farmers’ Federation and ForestWorks.

Built on the base of Skills Impact’s people and values, our drive to improve industry skills and training delivery is the same. Our scope has increased and we are excited to be able to empower industry and all stakeholders to have a say in all stages of the system, from the development of national skills standards, through to training delivery and assessment.
