Overview

Hosted by

The inaugural ADM Defence Skilling Summit, hosted by the Tasmanian Government, will be a one-day, high-level, executive gathering of key players from both Defence and Defence Industry. They will address the current and future skills requirements needed for Australia to remain a global player in the Defence space and to deliver and sustain the nation’s future Defence capability.

The Summit will assess how well-placed academic institutions and training providers are to deliver the skillsets of tomorrow; ask what more industry seeks from its education providers; and examine the impediments educators face in producing world-class, industry-ready graduates.

The conference will look at best-case scenarios for the re-skilling and upskilling of the current labour force, and how continuous improvement programs can deliver an agile, flexible and efficient workforce.

The conference program is currently in development, please click here to register your interest in receiving it.
