Shaping Tasmanian’s renewable energy workforce

The Tasmanian Department of State Growth, funded Artibus Innovation to work alongside industry, university researchers, registered training organisations, state government bodies, local councils and businesses to design and develop an entry level Certificate II in Renewable Energy Pathways. This provides participants with requisite skills and knowledge to undertake work in a range of occupational pathways in the renewables sector (e.g., wind, solar, hydro and hydrogen).

A great piece of work that supports the Tasmanian Electrical Supply Industry workforce’s future. The certificate is an important steppingstone for our apprentice program.

This project set out to ensure Tasmania prioritises renewables skills and training development and avoids a potential skills shortage as it transitions towards a renewable energy economy.

Course development

We are regularly engaged by industry associations or training providers who need support to develop an accredited course to address current skilling gaps. We can manage the end to end process or provide bespoke expertise. These assignments support our commitment to supporting quality education, industry innovation and sustainable cities and communities.

Assessment models and regulatory reform

The Victorian Government has engaged us to develop both a Trade Assessment model and a para professional – building practitioner scheme.

These assignments are driven by our commitment to co-design and bring all stakeholders together to share understanding and value.

Victorian Skills Authority (VSA)

Artibus Innovation is engaged by the Victorian Skills Authority (VSA) to provide Executive Officer services to the Construction Industry Advisory Group. (IAG). The IAG is a key mechanism for the construction industry to provide input and advice on Vocational Education and Training (VET) and workforce development to the Victorian Government. The principles of decent work, economic growth, quality education and industry innovation are enshrined in the work of the VSA and our support for them in these areas.

Skills Service Organisation (SSO)

In its capacity as a national SSO, Artibus Innovation worked across all levels of government and with a broad range of stakeholders to gather industry intelligence and to identify skills and workforce needs and co-design these needs to competency standards for national training packages.

We developed and maintained a solid understanding of the challenges faced by industry to access, in a timely manner, the skills needed for safety, productivity and building confidence. We leveraged our VET systems knowledge to support industry innovation to meet these challenges. In consultation with industry stakeholders, we reviewed and developed: 

  • 74 qualifications
  • +2000 skills and knowledge competency standards
  • 30 skill sets.

Our work as an SSO was underpinned and led by national training package policies and priorities set out by industry and government.
