National Skills Standards Council
The NSSC commenced operations on 1 July 2011 as a committee of the Standing Council on Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment (SCOTESE).
As one of several Standing Councils that report to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG), SCOTESE is the successor of the Ministerial Council for Tertiary Education and Employment. This change in structure reflects COAG’s goal to strengthen Australia’s vocational education and training sector.
The National Skills Standards Council was established from 1 July 2011, signifying the implementation of a decision made by COAG in December 2009.
