WorldSkills Australia hosts some of the nation’s largest and most logistically-complex events, catering for up to 60 different skill categories at the biennial WorldSkills Australia National Competitions.
Running these skill categories uses significant quantities of water, energy and materials, and generates multiple waste streams.For the 2012 National Competition, WSA, DSF and ARUP worked alongside to trial a more robust approach to assess the comparative sustainability of the categories participating and also, the first year that the Green Team considered environmental, social and economic impacts in the planning and design of category projects.
TRAC was a pioneering program of vocational learning for school students in Years 11 and 12 centred around structured and assessed work placements. It was designed and developed in 1989 by the Dusseldorp Skills Forum.
Dusseldorp Forum is one of a group of foundations pooling resources to assist First Nations organisations to respond to the current pandemic. Aboriginal community-controlled and governed organisations are most effectively able to articulate the needs on behalf of their communities.
During the COVID-19 crisis Maranguka’s infrastructure, capable of bringing together community, government, and local services to quickly and effectively reach the most vulnerable has wrapped around elders, families, and young people to keep them safe, informed, and connected.
