Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link



Whitsunday Regional Council is supporting our local Agriculture, Mining and Tourism industries to ensure there is a supply of skilled local people.

Council is working with the Queensland Government to deliver the 'Skilling the Whitsundays' Regional Skills Investment Strategy (RSIS) project, which aims to identify training and skills gaps and better connect local people to local training opportunities.

Council will be engaging with local business and industry leaders from each of the key pillar industries of Agriculture, Mining and Tourism

The 2 year project aims to bridge the gap between existing training opportunities provided through the Annual Vocational Education & Training (VET) Investment plan and current workforce needs in the region.

Council's RSIS Project Coordinator will be coordinating a Reference Group with members from local industry and business groups that will meet regularly throughout the project to identify local barriers to training and determine suitable solutions and outcomes.

One of the key objectives of the Project is to identify available and emerging jobs in the three pillar industries and the skills needed for those roles.

Council will be working closely with our local industry to promote local training opportunities, and the project will also identify any skills issues or shortages.

The Skilling the Whitsundays RSIS project is proudly supported and funded by the Queensland Government.
