G21 CAREER DEVELOPMENT AND SKILL SERVICE (CDSS) REPORT
CLIENT: G21 with Funding through the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and
Local Government’s Innovative Regions Centre Program
The CDSS project was funded by the Federal Government and undertaken on behalf of G21, an alliance of five Councils (Greater Geelong, Surf Coast, Colac Otway, Golden Plains and Queenscliff) and more than 150 participating local organisations working together towards a common vision.
Through an extensive consultation process, the project developed a model for an integrated labour market service which encourages collaboration between service providers to better meet the needs of school leavers, those still at school, unemployed jobseekers, those considering a career change, as well as industry associations and employers.
It is regionally focused and will ensure that clients and service providers are informed and coordinated to meet specific regional demand for stronger workforce development outcomes.
