Facilitating the continual improvement of workforce skills in the creative, leisure and technology sectors to drive economic growth & productivity, as well as enriching Western Australia's cultural and social landscape - now and into the future.
Skills for Recovery
FutureNow continues to gather industry information about the impact of Covid19 on the creative, leisure and technology industries as the country enters recovery stage. Despite the scale of impact on their operations, the performing and visual arts, cultural institutions, hospitality providers, tourism businesses, events companies, media and print companies, the screen sector, technology providers and sport across all codes and levels are adjusting their business models to partially or fully re-open. Within this context FutureNow is providing information to the government through the Department of Training and Workforce Development about training responses that could support this process. The following information is helpful;
what is the ongoing effect of Covid19 on your operations, especially in relation to workforce- this might include job losses, reduced hours for staff or increased demand.
what are the immediate skills needed to help with re-opening and ongoing restrictions?
what are the medium to long term skills needed to help with business or organisational recovery?
are there barriers to accessing the skills and support you require?
This information is of value to government and the education and training sector as it will inform policies and initiatives around upskilling existing workers and potential re-training programs for workers moving into different roles.
FutureNow's team are available to talk to you - please feel free to contact me or your industry development manager.
