Abstract/Summary This report has been developed by the Centre of Sustainable Organisations and Work (RMIT University) for the Gordon Institute of Technology (The Gordon). The aim of the report is to review the labour market for the Regional Geelong Area (RGA), in particular the major sectors of employment: Health and Community Services, Manufacturing, and Education and Training. The objectives are to: Identify the types of skills and qualifications workers currently possess, and how these may (or may not) meet current or future skills needs of Regional Geelong Area businesses; Suggest potential future skills demands of employers with a consideration of changes in demand; Understand the position of displaced and vulnerable workers along with their career aspirations as they confront changes in employment and labour market conditions; and Inform development of a long-term vision for jobs and training in the Regional Geelong Area. Utilising a combination of statistical and qualitative data, the report analyses the current state of these employment sectors and considers possible future trends. Workers' skills and aspirations are considered alongside the forecast trends, in order to inform recommendations and priorities for policy makers and training providers.
Commissioning body The Gordon Institute of Technology (The Gordon), as part of the 'Skilling the Bay' initiative, on behalf of the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, State Government of Victoria
