Industry training is systematic training in skills characteristic of, or likely to be valuable to, an industry. It is delivered to people employed in that industry.
Industry training funding is generally accessed only by Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) and is agreed through Investment Plans. Delivery of Plans is monitored by us.
Any TEO that receives funding must abide by a number of rules and conditions.
Allocations are made for each calendar year.
Industry training is primarily governed by three Acts:
Industry Training Organisations are recognised by the Minister for Tertiary Education under section 5 of the Industry Training Act 1992 (the Act).
An ITO has three main roles under the Act:
- Standard setting for its industry(ies)
- Arranging the delivery of industry training
- Providing leadership within its industry(ies) on skill and training needs.
Access to Industy Training funding will be considered in accordance with government policy, (as directed by the Minister’s determination under section 159L of the Education Act 1989), the Tertiary Education Strategy, and in response to performance.
