The Northern Territory Government is planning for the workforce of the future and wants your feedback.

We are committed to supporting a skilled workforce by helping Territorians prepare for jobs of the future and providing industry with the workforce it needs to grow and diversify the Territory’s economy.

From July 2019, the Northern Territory Government will roll out Territory Workforce 4.0 to help ensure the Territory is ready for changes to the world of work in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, known as Industry 4.0.

Industry 4.0 presents challenges and opportunities across all industries and sectors. It’s clear the future workforce will require transferable and diverse skills including advanced automation and robotics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, sensor technology and data analytics. These skills will also need to be supported by essential (portable) skills including interpersonal and human intelligence, adaptability and resilience, critical thinking and resourcefulness.

Territory Workforce 4.0 aims to address the impacts of Industry 4.0 by targeting future skill trends and skills training needs, while equipping the skills sector with the required infrastructure to provide future skills training. To do this, we need to hear from you!

The Territory Workforce 4.0 package has a budget of $4.2 million per annum for two years and comprises of three programs:

  • Training Infrastructure Fund – will provide infrastructure support to private registered training organisations and industry associations to support or facilitate future focused training delivery and enhanced innovation.
  • Future skills – providing individual Territorians access to approved future skills training.
  • Regional Futures – to support individuals to capitalise on opportunities that arise from significant projects or future economic opportunities specific to a region.

This package is being designed to complement the Northern Territory’s vocational education and training (VET) system through the Department of Trade, Business and Innovation’s Workforce NT division’s current suite of targeted and responsive programs, by providing funding focused on individuals and business growth.

This discussion paper is part of an ongoing VET Investment Framework conversation. This package aims to support you and we encourage you to have your say using the survey links below.

The survey is now closed.
