This project comprises a detailed examination of learning pathways into the emerging employment opportunities in a disadvantaged and remote part of Australia, the Big Rivers Region in Northern Territory. In doing so, it tackles the complex relationship between learning and skills shortages. By identifying the drivers and conditions for success, it provides not only understandings about the area under study, it will stimulate study elsewhere. The overall aim is to provide an empirically informed basis for developing policy. The challenge with the Big Rivers Region is to establish pathways for residents to access the emerging employment opportunities in the industry growth sectors.
