New plan for future jobs in Victoria


The state government will help job training and skills facilities to collaborate, in order to assist Victorians, including those in Melton and Moorabool, to gain employment and create more jobs.

A new Skills Plan from the government outlined the state’s challenges in connecting training and skills with jobs, as well as identifying the key industries that will require more workers in the coming years.

The plan also provides guidance for TAFEs, universities and training and education providers to tailor their courses to match local industry and community need.

The delivery of the plan will be driven by the Victorian Skills Authority, as it will bring together key stakeholders of the skills sector such as employers, unions, training providers and trainees.

Victorian Minister for Training and Skills Gayle Tierney said the Skills Plan would help to put more Victorians into new jobs and careers.

“Working shoulder to shoulder across industry, unions, training providers and government will mean we can work with one purpose in mind, a high quality, accessible training system that delivers what students and employers need.”
