Have your say about skills needs of South West
Tuesday, 5 June 2012
People will have the opportunity to have their say about the workforce development and skills needs of the South West at community consultation sessions taking place this month.
The public meetings will be held across the region as part of research for the South West Workforce Development Plan, which is being created to ensure the region has the necessary skills and labour to take up future economic opportunities in the region.
The plan is being developed by the Department of Training and Workplace Development in collaboration with the South West Workforce Development Alliance, which is chaired by a representative from the South West Development Commission.
SWDC infrastructure and enterprise manager Graeme Baesjou, who chairs the South West Workforce Development Alliance, said the community had an important role to play in the formation of the plan.
"Your input will be valuable in identifying the skills needs of the region and putting together strategies to ensure these needs are met," he said.
"Whether you are from a large company, a small business or are an individual, we encourage you to take up this opportunity to have your say about an area that's key to the region's future prosperity."
