The TFFPN this year launched the Forest Industry Workforce Development and Implementation Plan, which aims to ensure the forest and wood processing industry is an industry of choice and has a skilled workforce to support the sector into the future.
The Network along with local consultancy, RMCG, collaborated and consulted with an industry working group to develop the Plan.
The project was supported by the Tasmanian Training and Skills Development Service, a service funded by the Australian and Tasmanian Governments to support the rebuilding and reskilling of the Tasmanian forest and timber industry.

Complementary to the Workforce Development Plan is the sector’s Diversity Action Plan, that articulates and reflects the perceived and real constraints and barriers to supporting a diverse and inclusive workforce for our forest industry. Connecting & Belonging: Forest Industry Diversity Action Plan can be found HERE.
The Tasmanian Forests and Forest Products Network recently held its ‘Workforce of the Future’ Industry Workshop at Tram Sheds in Launceston. The event was attended by around 50 stakeholders. View Tracey Taylor’s Workshop presentation HERE.
