Nimble News 5 April 2023

WA Jobs and Employment Survey

The FFTITC Team finished off our submission to the WA government on the workforce and skill issues of our industries. We provided 9 Industry overviews and commented on 79 occupations. There were some very clear cross industry themes:

  • Most industries are experiencing labour and skill shortages, with them impacting the ability of businesses to provide quality services and achieve business growth.

  • Many employers don’t know how to navigate the training sector and don’t know where to go for information.

  • Regional stakeholders talked about the difficulty in accessing training and because of small student numbers, local training providers often can’t offer suitable qualifications.

  • Training is becoming critical in many industries to keep abreast of advances in technology and new processes.

  • Employers find signing up apprentices and trainees cumbersome and need more support in finding suitable recruits. There needs to be better transitioning from school to workplaces.

Plus many more…..

We are currently going through our notes to identify potential solutions that we can do to help industry and to develop a 12 month activity plan. More to come about this.

We’d like to thank all our stakeholders for their input. We are very lucky to have an enthusiastic network who want to see their industries thrive now and in the future. If you want to talk to the team about any of this, please give us a call on 9361 2800.
