Manufacturing a skilled Australia

Who we are

Manufacturing Skills Australia (MSA) is a Manufacturing industry based not for profit organisation established by industry employers and unions to support manufacturing industry skills and workforce development and research. This support is provided through a fund that provides sponsorships, support payments to individuals to support their career development, and other activities designed to promote manufacturing industry careers and skills development.

MSA is governed by a bipartite board of industry directors with an independent Chair. 

Please note that Manufacturing Skills Australia is no longer the Industry Skills Council for manufacturing and any inquiries associated with Training Package development should be directed to IBSA Manufacturing
