Agskilled Training Strategy
The AgSkilled training strategy is a $14.7 million investment by the NSW Government to support vocational training in the cotton and grains industries in rural and regional NSW. It is an industry-led initiative administered under the NSW Government's Smart and Skilled program.
The strategy is running until mid 2020 and aims to:
- drive the productivity, profitability and competitiveness of the cotton and grains industries by developing a workforce capable of managing current and future challenges, and
- cement the cotton and grains industries as employers of choice by creating a clearly defined career pathway underpinned by an appetite for training and professional development
Cotton Australia and the Grains Research and Development Corporation are leading all aspects of the strategy including:
- identifying industry training needs
- sourcing participants
- deciding on their preferred Smart and Skilled providers
Cotton Australia and the Grains Research Development Corporation are endorsing providers with a demonstrated interest in rural industries and a current Smart and Skilled contract to deliver training via a due diligence process.
A dedicated AgSkilled Project Officer, working on behalf of Cotton Australia and the Grains Research and Development Corporation is coordinating the training to be delivered under the strategy.
