Part 3 - Ashfield’s Education and Skills Action Plan - Activities

Here is the action plan for education and skills activities in the district that offers an assessment of progress on key indicators, as well as initiatives currently underway.

Education and skills improvement

Ashfield's Education and Skills Action Plan focuses on three areas including: Talent attraction and retention; Skills to meet demand; and Skills for future growth. In Talent attraction and retention, the aim is to develop a new demand-led skills programme in collaboration with employers.

In Skills to meet demand, the aim is to develop skills innovation and inclusion by working with business leaders, education, skills support, and research, development, and innovation (RDI) institutions to support the concept of an Ashfield ‘total skills solution’. In Skills for future growth, the aim is to work with emerging businesses, their supply chains, and academia and skills providers, to prepare a comprehensive future skills programme.
