1 © Workforce Planning Australia - The Hume Workforce Development Committee Hume Regional Development Australia Labour Market Snapshot Workforce Planning Australia | March 2012 It’s all about the Evidence

2 What is a Labour Market Scan? The approach for developing the Labour Market Snapshots considered a range of information as shown by the graphic below: 2 | The primary focus of the snapshots is on identifying Hume industry & occupational growth trends. The primary focus of the snapshots is on identifying Hume industry & occupational growth trends. The population, education & workforce participation levels provide context for regional labour market analysis.

3 Data Overview

4 Labour Market Data Sources 4 | The Labour Market Snapshots drew on multiple data sources. These include: Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS): o Census Data, 2006 o Labour force Surveys o Industry reports DEEWR: o Skills Shortages List o Regional profile information Hume: o Workforce Development Committee Report o Hume Strategy for Sustainable Communities Other: o Skills Info Industry Reports o Skills Victoria Enrolment data o Monash CoPs Data on occupations o Industry Skills Councils – Environmental Labour Market Scans

5 Quality and Limitations The data challenges included: 1. Different definitions of industries / occupations between ABS, Industry Skills Councils and Monash. – ‘Health Care and Social Assistance’ (ABS) vs Community Services & Health – Different terms used for occupations, ‘personal carers’ or ‘health aid’ etc. 2. Different Time periods 3. Old Data - ABS Census data is now 6 years old. 4. Lack of HUME region industry data particularly for industries where employers are predominantly private sector (e.g. manufacturing and Transport and Logistics) 5. Lack of regional Skills Shortage Data – DEEWR lists are at the State level 6. Changes in name and level of VET qualifications (training packages) 7. Poor sourcing of data – The data source and date were unclear 5 |

6 Limitations on trend analysis When available the 2011 ABS Census data should be compared with 2006 data to build a picture of emerging and declining occupations in Hume. Key data includes: Industry employed by Age and LGA Occupation by Age and LGA Education Levels by Age and LGA Main good and Services provided by employer by LGA Hours worked by occupation and Age 6 |

7 Hume Labour Market

8 About Hume The Hume Region is comprised of four distinct and inter-connected sub regions that extend over 40,000 square kilometres of provincial northeast Victoria. The Region contains twelve local government areas (LGAs) and is characterised by a network of regional cities and centres located along major transport routes. There is no single dominant major regional city in the Hume Region. The four Hume sub regions are structured as follows: ― Central Hume: Alpine, Benalla, Mansfield and Wangaratta ― Goulburn Valley: Greater Shepparton, Moira, Strathbogie and Campaspe ― Lower Hume: Mitchell and Murrindindi ― Upper Hume: Indigo, Towong and Wodonga 8 | Source: The Hume Strategy for sustainable communities , Skills Victoria.
