Inspiring Stories & Businesses

NWDF: The Stories tells real-life accounts of how the National Workforce Development Fund is benefiting Australian transport and logistics enterprises.

Our industry, worth an estimated $122 billion, or almost 10 per cent of Australia’s GDP in 2012, is diverse in sector and geography, with about 165,000 enterprises across rail, roads, maritime, aviation, ports, logistics and warehousing in every state and territory.

The NWDF is a major component of the Federal Government’s Skills Connect initiative, providing $667 million to industry to support and develop its workforce productivity.

The funding supports the completion of full qualifications or skill sets for existing workers and industry inductees in priority areas of need, and has enabled many enterprises to implement whole-of-business solutions to develop and future-proof their operations.

In NWDF: The Stories, the Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council have captured narratives of that initiative through human achievement and corporate commitment.

With human capital front and centre on government agendas, the role of training will continue to rouse attention. To that end, the NWDF is funded through to June 2016.

TLISC can support businesses and associations to identify current and future operational and workforce needs, and determine whether funding is accessible.

We encourage you to ask us about how the NWDF can work for your enterprise.
