Taking immediate action
We asked students, businesses, communities training providers and industry for feedback on the opportunities to position South Australia's skills system for the future.
Thank you to those who shared their ideas, thoughts and opinions through written submissions, online survey responses and workshops.
What you told us
The feedback received during South Australian Skills Plan engagement identified a range of challenges and opportunities facing communities and industry sectors.
You told us that learner wellbeing and good information about training options was critical to supporting completions.
We also heard about the important role of skills in addressing shortages, and the need for greater recognition of the role of VET in skilling people for work, especially in shortage areas.
Insights drawn from across the state highlighted strong support for fostering more partnerships and responses that provide the flexibility to pilot new approaches and address the specific training needs of sectors and regional economies.
