Employment and Skills Strategies in Australia focuses on the role of local employment and training agencies in contributing to job creation and productivity. It looks at the role of Local Employment Coordinators, introduced by the Department of Employment to work in 20 "priority employment areas" which were identified as needing extra assistance following the global financial crisis. This report is part of a comparative OECD review of local job creation policies, which explores how countries are putting measures in place at the local level to stimulate quality employment, social inclusion and growth.



Executive summary

The OECD Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) Programme has developed the OECD Reviews on Local Job Creation as an international cross-comparative study examining the contribution of local labour market policy to boosting quality employment and productivity. In Australia, the review has looked at the range of institutions and bodies involved in employment and skills policies. In-depth work was undertaken in two priority employment areas: Ballarat-Bendigo and Ipswich-Logan.
