Northern Futures was established in 2002 to operate independently of Government structures for the benefit of local industry and community members in the region.
A key role for Northern Futures is to develop and progress State and Federal Government programs to advance education, training and workforce development in the region and aim to:
- Ensure joint ownership and solutions between State Government, Federal Government, Local Government, Industry and the Community
- Create strong working relationships with local businesses to support and expand established industries
The City of Salisbury, the City of Playford, the City of Tea Tree Gully, the City of Port Adelaide Enfield and the City of Charles Sturt are the northern councils who work in collaboration with Northern Futures to offer Career Services. Northern Futures has established relationships with local industry, registered training organisations, community groups and jobactive providers (Australian Government Employment Services) and Disability Employment Service.
