One of the key messages that came out of the recent Queensland Workforce Summit is that initiatives need to be Government enabled, Industry led and community focused. This priority is also reflected in the Queensland Workforce Strategy with a vision to connect Government, Industry and community.

And if there’s one thing CSIA does well it’s bringing together Government and Industry to design place-based approaches with and for communities. Collaborative efforts like this are key to the success of the Strategy and to prepare us for the future.

CSIA A/CEO Matthew Gillett and A/General Manager Programs Mandy Strathearn met recently with Minister for Employment and Small Business and Minister for Training and Skills Development the Hon Di Farmer. The Minister is looking forward to working with Industry towards a workforce for the future.

Here we bring you a snapshot of the opportunities the Strategy holds for the Community Services Industry.
