The Tourism Employment Plan provides a vision, outlines priority actions and sets out a framework for the delivery of workforce solutions for the tourism sector. Developed in consultation with industry and key organisations, the plan has four strategic priorities to address the employment and workforce challenges, all working towards the industry vision of “exceeding customer’s expectations, with outstanding local knowledge.”
The Minister for Employment, Higher Education and Skills has requested that the independent Training and Skills Commission seek feedback from industry to identify their priority Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications.
The IPQ Survey can be completed from Wednesday 9 September - Friday 9 October 2015 at www.tasc.sa.gov.au/survey
Your participation in the Industry Priority Qualification (IPQ) survey will help guide future public investment in the VET system in South Australia. This includes helping to inform future iterations of the Work Ready Subsidised Training List (STL).
Have your say on Industry Priority Qualifications and help ensure that South Australia’s workforce is responsive to current and emerging skills needs.

Open all Year (OAY) is one of the most significant tourism projects undertaken on Kangaroo Island.
The project is funded by Kangaroo Island Futures Authority working with Tourism Kangaroo Island and the Kangaroo Industry and Brand Alliance. It aims to provide the opportunity for Kangaroo Island Businesses to proactively work together to address seasonality challenges, and create sustainable year round economy.
The much-awaited digital library to help Kangaroo Island businesses to improve their online presence and tell an all year-round story about Kangaroo Island.
The Open All Year portal contains photos, videos, fact sheets and documents you can use now on your website and social media, or to print out for your guests. There’s also toolkits developed by tourism and business professionals to help improve your year-round offering.
Over coming months we’ll be adding blogs and we’ll continue to build on our library of images and fact sheets. We won’t ever have everything; many traditional images of Kangaroo Island you can find from other sources.
What we’re trying to do is help you to tell some of the untold stories of Kangaroo Island, the things visitors may not know about – wildflowers, walking trails, waterfalls, rugged wintry coastlines and more.
While all Kangaroo Island accommodation is suitable for exploring the Island, particular regions of the Island afford different advantages. Whether you are arriving in the evening and need accommodation close to the ferry port, you prefer to be close to shops and restaurants or if you really want to get away from it all and stay in a more secluded area, there is a region on Kangaroo Island to suit everyone. Need some help with your bookings ... then call us now on ...
