Industry Learning Priorities: Challenges for Regional Australia in the Context of Change
This paper reports research in progress into what peak industry bodies perceive their industry's learning needs are, given the challenges and changes facing those industries, with a particular emphasis on regional Australia. The research was undertaken through a telephone survey (n=23) of peak employer organisations, unions, and Industry Training Advisory Boards (ITABS) across a range of industries. Findings include: some industries appear to be more cohesive and further developed than others; changes in the nature of work and work organisations are leading to individuals and groups requiring new skills which include the capacity to be able to work within develop loosely coupled strategic alliances; and communities of practice and continuous learning are necessary to support this trend; and that these continuous learning skills are going to be more important in the future. Implications and recommendations for further research are outlined. [Author abstract, ed]
