Neil CoulsonVictorian Skills Commissioner (VSC)

    Mr Neil Coulson was appointed the inaugural Victorian Skills Commissioner in 2015 following the government’s decision to create an independent body dedicated to improving Victoria’s training system. The Commissioner has made significant strides since, consulting across industry, unions and employers to determine the skilling requirements of the Victorian economy, both now and into the future.

    The Commissioner is well placed to advise government on how training systems can support the skilling needs of industry; he was the Deputy Reviewer of the Victorian VET Funding Review in 2015 and has an extensive background across industry and business.  In early 2017, the Commissioner was nominated by the Victorian Government as the Victorian representative for the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC).
