Abstract/Summary This working paper is the first publication coming out of a project investigating the role of VET in developing digital skills in the Australian workforce, using two sectors as case studies - Transport and Logistics, and Public Safety and Correctional Services. An analysis of online job vacancy advertisements showed that only a small number mentioned digital skills as a requirement. The training packages for these industries contained significant digital training content but with the majority of these units of competency occurring as electives. These findings raise questions about whether employers are making assumptions about the digital skills of potential employees.
