Section 15 of the Vanuatu Qualifications Authority Act No. 1 of 2014 states that "the Authority may establish an Industry Skills Council to advise the Authority in relation to particular industries".

The members are key industry contacts for the VQA as they:
  1. Provide independent industry advice on the training and skill needs of industry that will facilitate workforce development.
  2. Assist VQA in
    • Identifying training priorities
    • Formulating policies
    • Implementing reforms
    • Designing industry-related strategies
    • Being a partner for industry skill initiatives

In addition, the Vanuatu Government Post-School Education and Training (PSET) policy puts emphasis on a quality assured training system that is demand driven, accessible and provides skills training leading towards recognised qualifications. To make this a success, input from the industry is vital.

VQA has established nine (9) different Industry Skills Councils (ISC's). To read more about them, go to Industry Skills Councils and their Members.
