The National Skills Commission developed the Australian Skills Classification Tool for citizens that outlines the various occupation profiles and their core competencies along with the skill sets required by an occupation (Show https://www.nationalskillscommission.gov.au/)
Since the beta launch, several industry leaders have utilized this tool and the commission is now rolling it out to the wider public.
This is Shub, Mahek, Amit, Dhruva and we are Team SMAD, and our solution Jedify aims to provide an interactive and easy-to-use interface that can be utilized by citizens of various skills and abilities to find their pathway to their career of choice.
We used the Australian Skills Commissions data set to create Jedify. (data set related image)
