Workforce supply and demand for the geospatial sciences and professions

The availability of sufficient workforce capacity in the surveying and geospatial sectors has been a concern at the national level for some time. This is also reflected in the workforce situation in Tasmania.

The surveying and geospatial sectors are important to many aspects of Tasmanian society including the productivity and competitiveness of Tasmanian industries, the efficient provision of government services, to consumers and to sustainable management of natural resources and the environment.

A shortage of skilled professionals and technicians in these sectors threatens to constrain the contribution that these sectors will be able to make to Tasmania in the future.

The Proposed Forum on Workforce Development is designed to be a catalyst for change. It will harness the power of data and technology to drive our industry forward by bringing together thought leaders, practitioners, and experts. Here is what you can expect:

Diverse Perspectives: The forum will feature presentations from employers, both in the private and public sectors, as well as suppliers. These insights will provide a well-rounded view of the challenges and opportunities within the geospatial sector.

Interactive Moderation: We will employ the Menti-Meter program to facilitate discussions, ensuring that your voice is heard, and your input is valued. Active participation is encouraged.

Hybrid Accessibility: Recognizing the challenges of physical attendance, we have created a hybrid setup that allows remote participation, making it accessible to a broader audience.

Expert Speakers: Industry representatives, government officials, and educational institutions will present their insights and strategies for building a robust geospatial workforce.

The Forum will be held at Crowne Plaza in Hobart with a live stream. 

There will be an opportunity for networking from 5 pm to 6 pm.
