Abstract

Training for employment in the regions is a challenge. It is not clear how training programs underpin the take-up of jobs that are available or what are the most efficacious processes at work in regions. To provide an insight into these relationships, this report aims to explore how training may influence and even shape regional employment.

The 2018 work package provided an overview of the programs in place in the study regions that were connecting residents to employment opportunities. The 2018 RAI research program and Diversity in Regional Growth and Development (Toner and Douglas 2020) report found that employment growth in the regions was predominantly within the Health and Community Services sector. For this reason, this report focusses on how training delivery has responded to employment growth in this sector as an exemplar of broader processes that may be promoted.
