Fraser Coast Workforce Blueprint released by Jobs Queensland
Jobs Queensland has been working with key stakeholders to develop collaborative, place-based plans to enhance workforce planning and development to support regions across Queensland.
The Fraser Coast Workforce Blueprint 2018 is the newest iteration, released last week, and examines implications of the NDIS rollout in the region. This work builds on the research and findings of an initial report entitled Growing Opportunities in the Fraser Coast: Informing regional workforce development, and has been developed with consideration to the Fraser Coast’s unique economic and labour market profile.
“Jobs Queensland is committed to developing place-based approaches where the community, at a local level and supported by government, is equipped with the right tools and capacities to develop innovative employment and job creation strategies,” said Jobs Queensland Interim Chair, Peter Henneken AM.
“The Growing Opportunities in the Fraser Coast report demonstrates the Fraser Coast has the potential to become a thriving service-oriented economy, providing the community has the skills and attitudes to meet, and grow, its future opportunities.”
