Solutions to address skill shortages in South Australia

The South Australian Government has invested $8.8m over 4 years to develop solutions to skills shortages and open new opportunities to connect South Australians to training and future jobs.

South Australia faces skills shortages in over 350 occupations (2023 Skills Priority List). It is estimated that over the next 5 years we'll will need almost 90,500 VET qualifications delivered to meet the skills demand of the state’s industries.

In 2022-23 8 projects were awarded to tackle current and emerging skills shortages in key sectors including defence trades, cookery, bricklaying and concreting.
