STUDY: Creating a national understanding of skills gaps and training needs in transport and mobility now and into the future
- Project leader: iMOVE Australia
- Project researcher: RMIT University
- Timeframe: June 2020 – August 2021
Transport is transforming. Whether you are moving people or goods, there is a revolution taking place driven by trends in technology, automation and access to data. We need to ensure that we have a workforce that is well-equipped to work and innovate within this evolving technological landscape, and that can also respond effectively to unexpected disruptions along the way.
Anecdotally we have been hearing from many sources of the existing and looming need for a range of both technical and soft skills in organisations. To date, there is no comprehensive study of what this looks like on a national level. To address this need iMOVE has partnered with RMIT University in this initiative to develop a clear understanding where we have skills gaps and how these can be addressed.
Between now and Aug 2021 this important study will examine skills gaps in our national transport and mobility industry by undertaking interviews, surveys and workshops with a broad range of people and organisations. It will also look at what is happening overseas for an international comparison. The study will provide an evidence-base on which to form decisions about re-/up-/cross-skilling our workforce, attracting new talent, and developing training options for use in Australia that could also be of interest to a global market.
