Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2013
Transport & Logistics Industry Skills Council TLISC is chartered with driving the skills and workforce development agenda across the entire transport and logistics industry, which encompasses activities in road transport, warehousing, rail, aviation, maritime, logistics and ports. TLISC is an independent, government-funded, non-for-proft organisation that works on behalf of the T&L industry to promote investment in skills and workforce development. The National Workforce Development Fund (NWDF) is an Australian Government initiative that provides funding to support training and workforce development in areas of current and future skills need for both existing and new workers. For more information about how TLISC can assist your organisation with NWDF, please call 03 9604 7200 www.tlisc.org.au twitter.com/TLISC Upskilling the transport and logistics workforce is a key priority for the Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC) in order to improve our industry and national productivity. The federal government's Skills Connect initiative is providing $700 million over five years through the National Workforce Development Fund (NWDF) to assist enterprises with their workforce development. Under the NWDF, enterprises can identify current and future business and workforce development needs and apply for funding to support the training of new and existing workers in an area of need. To date, TLISC has successfully brokered in excess of $20 million worth of investment in workforce development projects across all transport and logistics industry sectors. TLISC has recently undertaken a dedicated project to promote the NWDF. Across the country, participating organisations within the transport and logistics sectors dedicated their time to discussing the outcomes and benefts the NWDF has provided to them as an enterprise. Overwhelmingly, these organisations reported increased productivity, return on investment, greater awareness of workplace health and safety, and boosted morale as major benefts. NWDF: The Stories is a collection of narratives captured from the interviews and will be released as a companion document to the Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council 2013 Environmental Scan, to be launched on 18 April 2013. The NWDF is funded through to June 2015. TLISC can support businesses and associations to identify current and future operational and workforce needs, and determine whether funding is accessible. We encourage you to ask us about how the NWDF can work for your enterprise. Please contact our Workforce Development team on 03 9604 7200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
