VET: Working Together to Build our Future Workforce Forum

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.
