Outstanding example of evidence-led, place-based planning.
Key considerations including structural changes, coordinated strategies and the impact on the young, skills development and future employment make this a detailed and worthy strategic document. The challenge becomes what the major actors in each jurisdiction now do!
At the heart of this is the National Institute of Economic and Industry Research [NIEIR] modelling methodology using Melbourne and regional models, all of which have been developed over the last 25 years.
The Future Workforce: Melbourne’s North is a comprehensive report providing an evidence-based understanding of the region’s future workforce needs over the next 10 years. It identifies strategies to develop the skills of the local workforce to meet future business and industry demand and includes an action plan involving industry, the three levels of government, and education and training stakeholders.
Facing a time of unprecedented population growth, Melbourne’s North is evolving from a manufacturing to a knowledge economy. The region’s assets include major road, rail, freight and public transport infrastructure, a range of strategic assets such as Melbourne Airport, major new developments and a diverse workforce with an increasing level of skills and qualifications.
