Last week, FAPSTC commenced its regional visits to understand the current workings of local government and gain insights into the challenges facing community and businesses across WA.
Starting with the picturesque Wheatbelt region, our first stop was Moora. We listened to views of representatives from local businesses, peak bodies, government and the education sectors. Discussions explored the changes impacting industry, the influences on workforce development, and the skilling and training of staff and broader community.
One of our key goals is to advocate for industry to support skills development and access to relevant training services. Over the next few months, discussions with local stakeholders will form a series of submissions to the Department of Training and Workforce Development and the State Training Board to highlight local needs and inform the government’s workforce development, skilling and training decisions and policies to maximise employment opportunities in the State.
We would like to thank everyone for their valuable contribution and time. These are greatly appreciated.
Please feel free to contact Anna Thomas on 08 9328 6372 if you would like to give your views on any of these issues.
