In terms of workforce, Health Care and Social Assistance is the fastest growing industry in Queensland, with an anticipated growth of over 15% (approximately 50,000 workers) by 2022*.
A robust health and community services vocational education and training (VET) sector is vital in responding to this demand and equipping a workforce that can meet the current and future needs of our people and communities.
Our upcoming VET: Working Together to Build our Future Workforce Forum will bring together VET training stakeholders who are committed to producing quality training outcomes across health and community services to:
- Identify and unpack ‘hot topics’ for health and community services VET, with a focus on issues impacting quality
- Provide input to VET investment and the Training Packages with graduate outcomes, job-readiness and RTO sustainability in mind
- Explore the benefits and possibilities for moving towards a work-integrated approach to designing training solutions
The Health and Community Services Workforce Council recognises the need for a more collaborative approach between training and industry stakeholders in building a quality human services workforce. This initial forum is an opportunity to gain a shared perspective on possibilities for this, from a training provider perspective. It will be of interest to Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) who are seeking to strengthen industry partnerships in the delivery of quality training outcomes.
Date: Wednesday 30 May 2018
Time: 9.00am – 3.00pm
Location: SDA House, 385 St Pauls Terrace, Fortitude Valley
Join us to consider what is needed to build a sustainable, effective and agile training sector and to set the foundations for an evolution in industry and training sector collaboration.
