Who we are
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 employees staff who coordinate and manage the projects and activities that arise from our eight 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, making the Industry Advisory Groups an excellent vehicle for your voice to be heard in regard to training issues. For further details please refer to our constitution.
