According to IBSA (Innovation and Business Skills Australia) official reports, Business Services is the largest industry in Australia, with total national income of approximately $100 billion. Business Services has been one of the fastest growing service industries in recent years, benefitting from long term trends toward the outsourcing of business functions throughout other industries, such as manufacturing.
Reports for 2011 suggests the important areas of business sustainability, particularly through supporting development of leadership, innovation and risk management skills along with learning cultures; digital and new technology skills; and flexibility in the national VET system to respond to industry skilling needs as they emerge.
The outsourcing of services such as accounting, marketing, customer response and contact and IT support has been aided by improvements in communications technology. Outsourcing has encouraged competition in the provision of business services, which in turn inspires uptake of the competitively priced services by a larger range of customers. The employment outlook for Business Services occupations is fairly strong with solid job vacancies and increasing interest in hiring. In particular, business coaching and leadership management, change management facilitators and management functions are predicted to be in demand.
As there is an increase in the Business Services sector we are also witnessing a growth in industry professionals wanting to transfer their skills and knowledge onto others. The new Certificate IV in Training and Education is a must-have qualification to enter into the Training and Education industry, particularly in the VET Sector.
