Skills for the Future APTC & APCP

The purpose of this workshop is to work with relevant stakeholders to identify labour market needs, future workforce trends and skills gaps that provides an important basis from which training and development plans can be developed, to target priority sectors. Recognising the importance of aligning its training programs to labour market needs, the Australia Pacific Training Coalition (APTC) is currently conducting a Pacific-wide Labour Market Assessment (PLMA) to collate relevant existing and new data to formulate a national skills profile by occupation, qualification and outcome. The Australia Pacific Climate Partnership (APCP) is conducting a regional Climate Skills Audit. Climate Change and Disaster Resilience is high on Vanuatu’s national sustainable development agenda, and employers are increasingly demanding skills and capacities that enable adaptation to impacts and meet low carbon targets. The APCP Climate Skills Audit will analyse the current and future climate labour market in the region, and identify ways that ni-Vanuatu may better access climate employment opportunities.

APTC and APCP will endeavor to combine data collection and analysis where feasible, to enable more efficient consultation with key country partners. Supported by Vanuatu’s Department of Labour, a joint APTC-APCP workshop will be held on Wednesday 21st August to improve coordination and contribute to planning for future/ongoing labour market analyses that support the National Human Resource Development Plan and achievement of the goals of the NSDP Peoples Plan.
