Established in 1991 The Victorian Primary Industries Training Board (ITAB) Inc, trading as Primary Skills Victoria (PSV), has maintained the longstanding objective to support the best possible outcomes for primary industry employers and students through their interaction with the Victorian Vocational Education & Training (VET) System.

In partnership with peak industry bodies, union organisations, government departments, training providers and students in the agriculture, horticulture, seafood, animal care & management and conservation & land management sectors, PSV has worked to identify and advise on industry’s current and future  skills and training needs in order to support the reporting and resolution of training system failures and provide information to employers and students about training options and pathways in an industry-led training system.

Apprenticeship Mentor Program

Primary Skills Victoria is conducting an Apprenticeship Mentoring Program in Victoria through funding  from the Commonwealth’s Australian Apprenticeships Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Program seeks to improve Australian Apprenticeship retention rates through targeted mentoring and assistance to 360 Australian Apprentices working in the primary and food industries. The Mentoring Program is targeted first year apprentices working in agriculture, horticulture, forestry, food processing and aquaculture and fishing.  The first year of training has been identified as a key period when Australian Apprentices are most at risk of withdrawing.


Wool Industry Programs

In partnership with Australian Wool Innovation Ltd and local training providers, Primary Skills Victoria has negotiated the availability of a number of wool industry programs to engage young people in rural areas with their local wool industry.  

Wool Handler Workshops will be linked up with accredited training in St Arnaud, Ballarat, Goulburn and Hamilton this year.
