Hon. David Pisoni MP ◾ SA Innovation & Skills Minister

The South Australian Government has a strong emphasis on investing in the skills needed to support businesses, it’s definitely an employer driven model. What’s great is that the South Australian Government also recognises that, in many cases, it is independent Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) that are best positioned to deliver the quality outcomes that students and their employers look for.

The Hon. David Pisoni MP is the South Australian Minister for Innovation and Skills. This is your opportunity to speak with him about the following.

…….The issues to be canvassed in this presentation —
…….◾ The South Australian Government’s approach to contestable skills funding
…….◾ The role of the new South Australian Skills Commissioner in setting funding priorities.
…….◾ State’s support for innovative partnership between TAFE SA and independent training providers.

The Minister has a strong personal interest in vocational training. Upon completing his apprenticeship in a furniture manufacturing business, at the age of twenty-one his established his own business, manufacturing and retailing fine furniture and training twenty apprentices of his own. He operated his business until his election to Parliament.
