Led by industry and funded by government, AgriFood is charged with driving the skills and workforce development agenda across five main sectors:
• Rural and related industries (including agriculture, horticulture, conservation and land management, animal care and management)
• Food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing
• Meat
• Seafood
• Racing (greyhound, thoroughbred and harness)
AgriFood develops and implements workforce development strategies and industry's nationally endorsed qualifications to meet the current and emerging needs of agrifood enterprises, employees and students throughout regional and urban Australia.
We work with a vast array of stakeholders at all levels:
• on the ground with enterprises, regional communities and research organisations to drive adoption of new and better workforce planning and skills development;
• with schools, Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and the tertiary sector more broadly to drive high quality delivery and assessment of skills;
• with industry peaks and key bodies to build their voice as advocates and change agents of the national skills and workforce development agenda;
• with the three tiers of government to drive evidentiary-based policy formation which supports the needs of agrifood sectors and the challenges facing regional Australia's workforce.
