What is the NIIR?

NCVER has developed the AISC’s National Industry Insights Report to present a customised analysis of Australian labour market data on skills needs, training patterns, and economic and employment trends.

It brings this data together with grassroots industry intelligence and other literature to assist the Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) in the design and development of training packages to meet industry needs, now and into the future.

The NIIR is divided into 2 main sections:

  • The National Skills Overview provides a high-level picture of skills requirements in Australia, across all industries. This includes a framework of high-priority skills in demand, a breakdown of key factors and trends driving this demand, and a summary of key initiatives and training package development projects in place to address skills needs
  • The industry pages break this information down, sector by sector, providing easy-to-access industry-specific data and analysis on training patterns and employment trends, as well as an examination of industry literature and forecasts which identify the skills in highest demand over the coming years.

The data and information contained in the NIIR is refined and updated every year to ensure it remains useful and relevant.
