Survey: Northern Tasmania Regional Forestry Hub: Culture, Skills and Training Assessment

The Northern Tasmania Regional Forestry Hub (Hub) has commissioned researchers at The University of Melbourne to assess how factors relating to industry culture, skills and training impact the forest growing and forest processing sectors within the Hub.

The Hub was established in 2019 by the Tasmanian Forests and Forest Products Network (TFFPN) and is funded by the Commonwealth Government as part of the National Forest Industries Plan. The Hub works closely with industry and government to drive the objectives outlined in the Commonwealth Government’s Growing a Better Australia, a billion trees for jobs and growth.

What would we like you to do?
If you wish to participate in this research, we would like you to complete an on-line survey. In the survey we ask about your views on the current state of culture, skills and training within the sector, how these factors impact your activities, and what factors you think limit or promote growth within the sector. The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete.

Results from the survey will contribute to an assessment report that will assist the Commonwealth to develop policies regarding industry development opportunities, infrastructure needs, additional processing potential and employment opportunities for the forest industries within the Hub region.
