The National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) has launched its biennial survey of employers in order to identify the skills gap in various industries and organisations.
The survey will ask 9,000 employers to answer questions regarding the way they meet their skills needs and whether their training and recruitment strategies are effective.
From now until June, NCVER will randomly select employers from the Australian Business Register and question small, medium and large organisations across all industry sectors.
"We want to know how organisations employ and train their staff and how effective this training is at meeting their needs," said Sandra Pattison, general manager of Statistics at NCVER. The results from the survey will help shape future training.
“I urge those employers we contact to have their say. The more responses we get, the clearer the picture we get of what is happening in Australian workplaces around skills and skilling employees," she added. The survey takes an average of 10 minutes to complete.
The Survey of Australian Employers is conducted on behalf of the Australian, state and territory governments. The results will be published on NCVER’s website in late 2013.
Results from the previous survey are available at Employers' use and views of the VET system 2011.
