The AMA actively participates in COSBOA, the peak body for small business in Australia, particularly through its Workforce Capability & Skills Expert Panel. Small business, through COSBOA, have a chance to influence Australia’s Workforce Skills and Capabilities through the VET sector.
Your input is key to shaping training strategies for small businesses.
The Department of Employment and Workplace Relations is enhancing small business involvement in developing workforce and job opportunities for members through the Jobs and Skills Councils. These efforts will align the VET training system with your labour market needs.
We urge you to participate in COSBOA member survey. Your feedback will guide our advocacy with the government and help develop targeted training solutions for small and medium businesses.
- Understand specific skills needs, workforce capabilities and training experiences.
- Collect data on broader training preferences.
- Your voice is crucial in shaping effective training for small businesses.
If you do not use training for your staff, for one reason or another, the survey is also for you. In fact, the AMA had a couple of questions added to get to this question because we know many businesses don’t engage with the training system.
