Chronicle Counsel: Help Build the Workforce of Tomorrow 

Help Build the Workforce of Tomorrow with RDACC.

 

Regional Development Australia Central Coast (RDACC) and the CSIRO are inviting industry  leaders in construction, manufacturing, health and professional services to an initiative  designed to help build our future local workforce.

The Generation STEM Industry Engagement Workshop will be held on Thursday 31 March  from 8am-10am in the RDACC Boardroom at the University of Newcastle’s Ourimbah  Campus.

RDACC Director Regional Projects, Funding & Research, Christine Artis, says the event is an  opportunity for employers and industry leaders to collectively address the local challenges  regarding STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) pathways, and their  subsequent industry sectors.

“The Generation STEM initiative aims to attract, support, retain and train students in STEM  and school, into further education and employment,” says Ms Artis.

“The first program launched under Generation STEM is the STEM Community Partnerships  Program (STEM CPP), where students participate in STEM inquiry based projects to address  challenges faced by the local community and are connected to local STEM businesses,  providing valuable insight into local STEM pathways.

“This workshop provides an opportunity for local industry leaders to learn more about  Generation STEM, discuss their ideas on local challenges and find out how their organisation  can be involved in training and recruiting potential candidates in these critical skills shortage  areas.”

Opportunities to be involved include: mentoring teachers, hosting site visits, delivering a  masterclass or providing work experience opportunities. The time commitment is flexible and  there is no cost to participate.
