The Australian Government is developing the National Agricultural Workforce Strategy.

A discussion paper has been released and is requiring stakeholders input. The discussion paper covers:

  • impact of changes to agribusiness and broader society on the agricultural workforce
  • availability of workers, including barriers and impediments
  • skills and knowledge needs of workers and business owners and whether current education arrangements meet their needs
  • opportunities, best practice and case studies, and priority areas for action

The strategy will recommend potential actions to address the future workforce needs of the:

  • agriculture, fisheries and forestry industries
  • closely allied service and supply chain industry sectors.

These actions will target: school education, vocational education and training and higher education.
