Evaluation of the Skills Organisations Pilot Program

The Skills Organisations Pilot program is currently being evaluated to explore strengths and weaknesses of the model.

On this page:

In establishing the Skills Organisations (SO) Pilot program the Australian Government has supported an independent evaluation of the program. The evaluation is being undertaken by a consortia comprising Urbis Pty Ltd and ARTD Ltd and is being progressed through two separate but interrelated projects:

  • Project 1 - an assessment of the establishment phase of the SO pilot has been completed.

    Skills Organisation Pilots Evaluation Project 1 – Implementation Review Report.
  • Project 2 – an assessment of the early achievements of the SO pilots against the broader policy objectives of the program is currently underway.

    Project 2 is expected to be completed in April 2022. 

Lessons learnt from the evaluation of the SO pilots are helping to inform broader improvements to the national VET system, including industry engagement reforms.
