Industry Skills Advisory Council NT

The Industry Skills Advisory Council NT (ISACNT) is proud to again be sponsoring the NT Training Awards, this year as platinum sponsors. ISACNT’s mission is to be the principal source for the Northern Territory on matters related to industry vocational education and training (VET), and development of a skilled workforce through proactive engagement and research. As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, ISACNT works with local businesses, registered training organisations, schools, employees and the Northern Territory (NT) Government.

The Industry Collaboration Award highlights the holistic approach to future jobs through education and training that ISACNT champions. They wholeheartedly encourage and support collaborations across the sector to achieve common goals, share resources and encourage participation by more communities. By working closely with stakeholders, ISACNT are able to increase industry skills capacity and capability across the NT.

ISACNT is committed to supporting workforce development across the NT, and highlighting those who are excelling in VET. Just as the NT Training Awards finalists have proven, lifelong learning will become the norm as we rapidly move into the 21st century. As platinum sponsors of the 2018 NT Training Awards, ISACNT aims to share the new mindset of skills clusters and portable skills for jobs of the future. They also hope to share the value of 21st century skills to employers, and the value of lifelong learning through opportunities for up-skilling and re-skilling.

ISACNT supports the awards as it believes VET is vital to prepare for Australia’s future workforce. They congratulate all the finalists, and look forward to seeing them champion the future of work in the Territory.
