IBSA Manufacturing is the Skills Service Organisation (SSO) for the Manufacturing Industry. Our role is to identify and document emerging trends and future workforce needs through consultation and research.
We do this via our Industry Engagement Partners, industry networks and partnerships with industry bodies and influencers. Our research, analysis and recommendations provide the background for Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) to develop training packages and qualifications for the manufacturing sector.
Our expertise is in converting industry skills needs into occupational standards within national qualifications.
‘We partner with industry peak bodies, employers and our IRCs to strengthen the resilience of the manufacturing workforce so the sector thrives in the fourth industrial revolution.’
