The Future Battery Industries Cooperative Research Centre (FBICRC) in conjunction with the South Metropolitan TAFE, has released its “Vocational skills gaps assessment and workforce development plan”.

An Australian first, the plan funded by the FBICRC analysed the extent to which current national Training Package qualifications are aligned with the skills and knowledge needed in the emerging battery industry.

The plan is an important component of the FBICRC’s intention to support the development of the Australian battery industry’s future technical and trades workforce needs.
