Jobs and Skills for Regional SA

Project launched to better understand the demand and need for jobs in regions

The Department of State Development has embarked on a project to better understand and respond to industry demand and individual need for regional jobs and skills.

Stakeholder engagement activities are underway across South Australia’s non-metro regions including:

  • workshops with training providers, contractors and other key stakeholders
  • focus groups with jobseekers and specific groups of jobseekers
  • events for employers
  • stakeholder interviews and meetings
  • online engagement through surveys and discussion forums.

So far 30 engagement activities have been undertaken with over 1,000 people.

Outcomes of engagement activities will include:

  • creation of a Workforce Development Plan for each region outlining strategies to address skills, training and employment challenges and opportunities
  • tailored initiatives that meet demand and deliver improved outcomes for individuals, employers and communities.

For more information about the project and dates of the major stakeholder workshops in each region, visit the YourSAy website.
