Ensuring access to training & education options that support sustainable careers

While parts of our region report unemployment levels significantly higher than the state average, businesses often have challenges in recruiting and retaining staff to support their operations.

The vision of the Committee for Mornington Peninsula is to assist in bridging this divide by improving access to training and education that supports sustainable local jobs, Peninsula-based careers and the local economy.

THE COMMITTEE FOR MORNINGTON PENINSULA WILL:

  1. Support knowledgeable business formation and the capacity of aspiring business owners being well prepared to take on the responsibility and opportunity of local business ownership
  2. Improve access to training and education that supports sustainable local jobs, Peninsula-based careers and the local economy
  3.  Identify local skills shortages and partner with local employers to find creative training pathways for job-seekers to fill these gaps
  4. Explore the ‘multi-provider’ use of current education and training infrastructure as a way of bringing a more diverse array of post-secondary education opportunities to the region
  5. Pursue ‘living away from home’ benefits for students forced to leave the region to access training and education involving travel greater than current eligible recipient from other regions
