A vibrant economy is based on businesses having the right skills at the right time.

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

North Coast businesses and industries are encouraged to take the short Skills Audit survey. This input from local businesses will help identify any shortages. It will also assist in the development of effective, locally based policies and programs.

This survey follows on from the successful 2017 skills audit conducted by RDAMNC, which identified the need for a workforce that had the ability to use technology effectively, to innovate, and to respond to customer needs. Another important recommendation from the 2017 audit was the need for collaboration with education and training providers. This would address the future education and training needs of each industry sector.

The North Coast Skill Audit Survey is open until 29 May 2019 and by entering, you will have a chance to go in the draw to win an iPad.
