Training, Skills and Workforce Development

Industry Leaders Groups and Employment Projects and Services in Regions

Through the Department of State Development (DSD), the Far North Industry Leaders Groups (ILGs) was formed and are made up of highly skilled, committed and influential employers who have strong links to industry and the community. Using their local connections and knowledge, ILGs help government understand and respond to the workforce challenges experienced by industry and employers in and across regions. ILGs are the vehicle at the local and regional level by which industry and employers can influence, promote and support state government skills, training and employment priorities.

Employment Projects and Services Regional Network are also a mechanism that are shaped by a high level of stakeholder and community input, the network ensures Government intervention is focused on the greater social economic need of the region, the target groups within that area, and strengthens the capacity of local communities to determine and respond to work and learning needs.

The steering committee comprises representatives from Local Government, RDAFN, local businesses, Industry, RTO’s, Jobactive and other key stakeholders.
