The Defence Industry Education and Skills Consortium (DIESC) is an initiative of a cross-state group of universities, vocational education providers and industry bodies to provide a practical solution to the effective coordination of education and skills provision in the defence industry sector.
This event will be the official launch of the DIESC, which will include a panel discussion with key industry and academic stakeholders involved in the future naval shipbuilding programs.
The sheer scale of the combined naval shipbuilding programs will require a significant increase in skilled personnel for both defence industries and the defence forces, especially in engineering, ICT and other technical skills, this represents a significant risk to the success of these critical projects. Without strategic intervention, it is not clear how this requirement will be fulfilled. The panel will address the challenges and discuss how we as a national can overcome them.
