Indigenous Employment and Skills Strategies in Australia

image of Indigenous Employment and Skills Strategies in Australia

Innovative ways of working with Indigenous Australians are needed to improve their employment prospects, especially as many work in jobs that are most likely to be impacted by digitalisation and automation in the future. This report considers both quantitative and qualitative data regarding employment, skills, and entrepreneurship opportunities for Indigenous Australians. A number of case studies were undertaken with employment and training providers in the cities of Sydney and Perth to gain insights into the delivery of employment and skills programmes targeted to Indigenous Australians. The report highlights critical success factors to better link Indigenous Australians to high quality jobs while also providing recommendations regarding future employment and skills programming.

Assessment and recommendations

In some OECD countries, Indigenous people represent an important and growing demographic group with a unique set of cultures and customs. However, many face significant challenges in finding quality employment and economic development opportunities. Well-designed and targeted programmes can assist Indigenous people in developing skills to find long-term employment, while also contributing to broader economic development objectives and inclusive growth.
