About Us

The Role of the ITAB

The Community Services and Health Industry Training Board is the Industry Training Advisory Body (ITAB) for the Community Services and Health industries.

To ensure there is strong industry leadership of the training system, the Victorian Government funds a network of 16 ITABs which are experts on training needs and delivery in their particular industries.

ITABs provide authoritative, independent information on training needs, and promote skills development and take-up of training by businesses in their industries.

The Skills Victoria website's ITAB page has further details about the ITAB network and its role in the Victorian training system.

Our Vision

To lead, foster and support a dynamic, relevant and responsive learning culture across the community services and health industry.

Our Mission

To advance a training and learning culture for the community services and health industries that positions training and skills development as a key driver for business success.

The CS&HITB is focused on working with key stakeholders to embed a learning culture which delivers quality training outcomes, that guarantees a skilled and flexible workforce for the community services and health industries. Our approach to ensuring that our advice to government, the training system and industry is credible, is to maintain extensive and ongoing consultation processes that attend to customer needs. This is further enhanced by undertaking relevant projects that contribute to the learning culture of the industry.

Under the governance of senior industry leaders representing government, employers and unions, we seek the views of industry at all levels — individual enterprises, peak associations, and government, throughout regional and metropolitan Victoria. In this way industries' needs and views are represented in all our work.
