Project description

This project is designed to further develop vocational learning experiences and information sharing between Rockhampton and Korea. As the only regional area in Australia currently working with Human Resources Development Korea and other relevant stakeholders, Rockhampton has already been receiving groups of young professionals for vocational education and training. Through reciprocal visits and workshops in Korea and Rockhampton, in-depth industry knowledge and best practice for vocational education and skills shortages will be discussed so both countries can identify future directions of the program for continued mutual benefit. A fast growing region with multiple major projects and home to CQUniversity, Rockhampton has the capability to not only provide outstanding quality education and training, but a hands on experience with on the job training. Korea is proactive when it comes to improving youth unemployment and this is evident with many Government and non-government initiatives. This project will create a great synergy between an Australian region and Korea's young professionals seeking new opportunities.
