Take the survey and have your say on Our North, Our Future

Thank you for your interest in the Our North Our Future: workforce and skills project. In the wake of the closure of Holdens and the emergence of new industries it is timely to update the 2010 Northern Adelaide Skills, Workforce and Employment Blueprint.

If you live, work or operate a business in the City of Salisbury and/or the City of Playford, now is the opportunity to contribute your views on workforce, employment, skills and education in Our North.

We are hosting three forums: on March 26, 27 and 28. See the event details (and to register for free) on our Eventbrite page.

In addition, three slightly different surveys have been designed to collect the perspectives of job seekers, the people involved in workforce development and wider community members.

Each of the surveys asks questions that reflect the Six Pillars [of Success] identified in the 2010 Northern Adelaide Skills, Workforce and Employment Blueprint. Using this approach, Northern Futures will be in a position to track local views about changes, trends and work yet to be done to support future workforce development in Our North.

You only need complete the survey that reflects your circumstances and experience. Each survey is short and should only take about 10 minutes to complete. Feel free to have your say by completing more than one survey if you have recently informed perspectives from more than one position.
