Upskilled has released a new white paper on the Federal Government’s “Building Australia’s Future Workforce” package, aimed at providing greater opportunities for Australians to develop their skills, train and get into the workforce.
Upskilled believes that there are a number of actions that need to be taken to ensure the package succeeds in its aims and makes a real, tangible impact to industry in Australia. Without these actions, the package may struggle to produce the desired outcomes. The high level of Government investment and strong commitment to boosting skills needs to be supported by a number of achievable measures, in order to make a real difference to individuals and businesses.
