Local agrifood producers
interested in expanding their businesses should come along to a FREE workshop
hosted by North Coast TAFE and Coffs Harbour City Council on Monday August 17 as
part of the Growing Innovation Series of workshops.
North Coast TAFE recently
undertook a study into labour needs within the region and this workshop will give
participants the opportunity to explore the results of the study and look at
areas such as growth strategies and the development of training strategies to
support expansion within their businesses.
Also on the agenda will be
discussion on how the size, diversification and value adding of certain crops present
challenges and opportunities.
The workshop also offers a chance for participants to
have their say on what training opportunities they would like to see available in
the local agricultural sector.
Representatives from the Federal
Government’s Industry Skills Group will be on hand to explain how eligible businesses
can tap into the Industry Skills Fund to help meet the cost of training and how
the sector can work together to make the most of the available funding.
