Streamlining strategic industry advice to Government on skills

In late 2012, the Tasmanian Government announced its intention to transfer Skills Tasmania functions from a statutory authority to a business unit within the Department of Education and the Arts.  The Skills Tasmania Board was asked by the Minister for Education to provide advice on the nature of the future industry engagement arrangements that would be needed by the Government.

Skills Tasmania commissioned Stenning & Associates to investigate this issue through engaging with key industry stakeholders.  We produced, to tight timelines, a report titled Industry Engagement Options for Skills Tasmania - Final Consultation Report.  This report was used as the basis for the Board's advice to the Minister.  Following receipt of that advice, the Minister announced it would implement a new model for strategic industry advice to government on skills.

Our client had this to say about our approach "Stenning & Associates demonstrated exemplary best practice in stakeholder and consultation management and Skills Tasmania was pleased to witness the quality and procedural rigour of project delivery, combined with high quality and timeliness of outputs."
