Glossary term: National Industry Skills Committee

Acronym: NISC

A sub-committee established in 2006 to provide the Ministerial Council for Vocational and Technical Education (MCVTE) with high level evidence-based advice relating to workforce planning and future training priorities in the vocational education and training (VET) system.

On 28 April 2010, after reviewing the governance arrangements for the national VET system, the Ministerial Council for Tertiary Education and Employment (MCTEE), agreed to replace NISC as the single source of expert industry advice with four principal committees.
