The SCLAA has new initiatives planned for 2024, including an expanded mentoring program, specialised events for different industry sectors and professional development programs for career progression.
Additionally, it notes that is forging relationships that are addressing industry’s most urgent issues. Its partnership with the Institute of Transport & Logistics Studies (ITLS) at the University of Sydney, and jointly created and delivered multi-credential courses for senior and executive managers during 2023 have assisted with understanding the rapid technological changes that industry can leverage.
It says it will continue to work closely with TAFE NSW in highlighting skills shortages in the industry and bringing industry and TAFE together.
