Defence Industry Skilling and STEM Strategy

Defence Industry Skilling and STEM Strategy

A plan detailing how new jobs will be created to help deliver the Liberal National Government’s $200 billion dollar investment in defence capability was launched today.

Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Steven Ciobo MP, released the first Defence Industry Skilling and STEM Strategy at the 2019 Avalon International Airshow.

The Strategy outlines how the Liberal National Government will help Australian defence industry meet its workforce skills requirements with an initial investment of $32 million over the next three years.

“The strategy is part of the Government’s plan to grow a robust, resilient and internationally competitive Australian defence industrial base that is better able to help meet defence capability requirements,” said Minister Ciobo.

“There is a long-lead time to developing many of the skills needed by defence industry which is why we’ve developed this strategy.”

Minister for Defence, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, said building a strong defence industry will help Australia secure our interests at home, in our region and across the world.
