This paper provides a selection of models and approaches to workforce development that are of relevance to NSW non-government community sector (the sector). The intention is to provide a brief summary of existing options to assist us in developing a preferred model for the development of a workforce development strategy for our sector.
In this respect this paper aims to provide a descriptive summary (rather than an analysis) of current models, as well as stimulate thinking and discussion.
The information detailed in the paper has been adapted for this purpose and each source is referenced throughout the text.
