Regional Development Australia offering incentive of free iPad

The future of business will require a workforce that has the ability to use technology effectively, to innovate, and to respond to customer needs.

Regional Development Australia Mid North Coast (RDAMNC) and Regional Development Australia Northern Rivers (RDANR) have being reaching out to businesses and industry to help identify what types of skill shortages that exist across our region.

Businesses based within the North Coast region are encouraged to take the short Skills Audit Survey , this will help identify any shortages and assist in the development effective, locally based policies and programs.

The audit will run until May 31 and as an incentive, registered businesses that fill out the survey will go into a draw for an iPad.

The North Coast Skills Audit follows on from the successful 2017 skills audit conducted by RDAMNC.

Results from the 2017 audit showed that 50 per cent of respondents indicated skill levels were currently unfulfilled across all sectors on the Mid North Coast region.

An important recommendation from the 2017 audit was the need for collaboration with education and training providers, to address the future education and training needs of each industry sector.
