Murrindindi Training Needs Analysis Report 2013

The Plan for Growth Report was developed as part of the Skills, Training and Workforce Development initiative of the Eildon-Thornton-Alexandra Advancing Country Towns project.

It highlights the breadth of training being undertaken within and outside the Murrindindi Shire; trends and gaps in training provision and the current and future needs of key businesses and industry sectors.

It is an important tool for training and workforce development planning and for maximising employment opportunities within the Shire, particularly for young people and those seeking to retrain or to further develop their skills.
