With skills and labour shortages among industry's biggest concerns, Ai Group has been working with the federal government to find ways to develop our skills pathways for now and into the future.  

The need to focus on building the skills capability of our workforce across the economy has never been more important. Our competitive future relies upon implementing a raft of policies and related strategies that meet your needs and extend over the next decade. 

With these issues in mind Innes Willox, Ai Group’s CEO, hosted the Federal Minister for Skills and Training, Brendan O’Connor and member CEOs at a Roundtable on 1 November. 

Mr O’Connor heard directly from employers and discussed the federal government’s plans for a quality skills pipeline and access to continuing education and training for the existing workforce.
