Skills and workforce development
Identifying paths to skill growth or skill recession: Decisions for workforce development in the community services and health industries 2008
Client: CSHISC - Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council
The Community Services and Health Industries Skills Council commissioned the WRC to research the workforce development challenge faced by the community services and health industries in Australia and overseas. The outcome of the research is a theoretical model that presents what might be described as two 'absolute' or artificial scenarios - one leading toward skill growth, the other leading to skill atrophy, depending on a number of preconditions. This report was included as an appendix to the CHSISC's 2008 Environmental Scan.
