About theTraining Council
As a not-for-profit incorporated body, the primary purpose of the Food, Fibre and Timber Industries Training Council is to provide advice to Government on behalf of industry, and ensure all nationally recognised training programs and packages reflect the current and future needs within the industries. We also ensure that the quality of this training remains at the highest level and advocate the benefits of participating in and supporting training.
We provide independent information to Industry, Registered Training Organisations and relevant Government agencies on training and skills recognition arrangements, as well as actively promote training initiatives such as School Based Apprenticeship programs. A key role is to assist in the development, review and implementation process of the National Training Packages for our industries.
The Training Council is governed by a Board of Management , consisting of an equal representation of members from across the industry sectors. The Training Council employes four Staff who coordinate and manage the projects and activities that arise from our eight Industry Advisory Groups. For further details please refer to our constitution or contact us.
Our Board consists of three members from each of our industry sectors, representatives from two industry specific employee associations, the Chief Executive Officer of the Training Council, and an appointed representative from both the State Training Board and the Department of Training & Career Centres.
Industry Advisory Groups
The information gathered through these groups and the industry associations is delivered to the Department of Training and Workforce Development, the State Training Board, and the Minister for Training and Career Centres, making the Industry Advisory Groups an excellent vehicle for your voice to be heard in regard to training issues.
