Workforce Development and Training

Increasing participation by Tasmanians in education and training is an essential part of creating jobs, growth and opportunities for all Tasmanians.

Investing in skills and workforce development supports our economy to become more productive, be innovative and to compete on the global stage. It is also critical in ensuring a pipeline of skilled staff locally to fill new jobs being created.

The Tasmanian training and workforce development system has strong connections with business and industry to ensure that our training meets the needs of businesses and prepares individuals for real jobs.

The system also has targeted programs to help people that need support to be work-ready or face personal, physical or social barriers find a job and stay employed.

The Department of State Growth, through Skills Tasmania, takes the lead in developing and managing the Tasmanian training and workforce development system in partnership with industry, the education and training sector, and the wider community.
