Students and workers in South Australia are set to benefit from the state government’s plan to develop a skilled workforce required to support defence projects with benefits flowing into adjacent sectors for years to come.

In response to the South Australian Defence Industry Workforce and Skills Report and Action Plan released today by Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Defence Richard Marles and Premier of South Australia Peter Malinauskas, the DTC has come out in full support of the 22 recommendations made.

Chief Executive Officer, Libby Day said “The impact of these recommendations extends beyond the defence sector. It is a huge win for South Australia’s economy, students and the dedicated teachers who are shaping our next generation.

“SA is known as the Defence State, the industry is a huge economic driver for the state, and we have been working closely with the taskforce to ensure the needs of businesses working in defence industry are being met and I am pleased with the outcome.

“I look forward to continuing working with the South Australian Defence Industry Workforce and Skills Group to ensure that the skills required for the defence industry can be met.
South Australia’s defence industry is expected to grow from around 3,500 direct jobs to over 8,500 jobs in 2040. The recommendations made in the report will facilitate the growth in skills and capabilities the workforce needs to be able to deliver and support defence projects.”
