Forecast Opportunity View - ICIMP S-1 2021-2025
Industry Clusters (Stage 1) - Strengthening Australia's National VET System (2021-2025)
New Industry Clusters will be established by the Australian Government to provide industry with a stronger, more strategic voice and broader role in ensuring Australia’s VET system continues to deliver on employer and learner needs. The Industry Clusters will be groups of aligned industries with a strategic leadership role to identify, forecast and respond to the current and emerging skills needs and workforce challenges of industry. The entities will be established through a two-stage grant opportunity approach to market. The first stage will involve an open competitive process seeking proposals to establish and subsequently operate an Industry Cluster. The second stage will involve a closed non-competitive process to enable the newly established clusters to put forward detailed proposals to deliver on their full functions.
Both grant opportunities will be made available via Grant Connect. Industry briefings will be held following the publication of the grant opportunity guidelines (Stage 1). Interested parties should register on Grant Connect to receive notification of the grant opportunity publication.
