Regional Employment Trial
The trial takes into account regional variations to help ensure that local economic opportunities are better promoted to Australians looking for work and employment services providers.
In trial regions, Employment Facilitators will work with Regional Development Australia (RDA) committees to enable local stakeholders to address employment issues. RDA committees will play a key role in the identification, assessment and promotion of RET projects to ensure they align with local needs.
Stakeholders could include local governments, employers, training organisations, not-for-profits, employment services providers and other community organisations able to provide employment and training related opportunities and assistance to unemployed people.
The trial will deliver:
- stronger connections between regional stakeholders, including employment services providers
- tailored employment initiatives that meet local needs
- improved awareness of local labour markets
- the potential for improved regional employment outcomes
