The Australian Workforce and Productivity Agency provides advice to the Australian Government on current, emerging and future skills and workforce development needs
We consult closely with industry and education providers and undertake research and workforce studies to provide advice on skills and workforce issues including:
- demand for and supply of skills, particularly in specialised occupations and in priority industries
- productivity and participation
- the reform of our tertiary education sector
- better use of skills in workplaces.
The agency also provides strategic advice to the Australian Government’s National Workforce Development Fund.
