Details: The VET Data Streamlining (VDS) project, led by the Skills Policy and Strategy Section is part of a national initiative that will seek to transform the way vocational education and training data is collected, reported and used. The ACT implementation team will be responsible for how the project is implemented in the ACT, and will produce a policy framework as well as an engagement and implementation plan.

Skills Canberra is seeking an organised and strategic-minded individual to support VDS implementation in the ACT. As an assistant director you will be part of a small team undertaking complex tasks, and shaping policy that encompasses a large part of the ACT VET sector.

You will work across Skills Canberra, ACT Government, VDS partners, and key stakeholders, including registered training organisations. The interdisciplinary nature of the work means you should be a ‘big picture’ thinker, with a strong ability to link information from different sources. You will have some knowledge of data systems and how these are implemented and used by governments.

You will use high-level analytic skills to examine problems from multiple angles and propose optimal solutions. You also have the ability to produce high-quality written documents and presentations for senior management and external stakeholders.
