Global economic, social and demographic change during the 21st Century is impacting on the way people engage with work. Tasmania is not isolated from these developments, yet the state’s experience is vastly different to that at a national level. Like much of the developed world, the transition from traditional, labour intensive industry sectors based on resource extraction, manufacturing and agriculture to knowledge and service based industries is redefining the way in which in which we work, as well as the wider relationship between workers, employers and the education system. In Tasmania’s case, the ageing population, low levels of educational attainment and higher levels of economic vulnerability provide ongoing challenges to Tasmania’s future economic and social prosperity.
