The driving principle behind our Strategy 2015 is to support our customers to develop skills, build community capacity, enhance job growth and increase productivity.

Our five Key Focus Areas include:

  • Drive investment to enable innovation
  • Build networks and partnerships to support economic prosperity
  • Capitalise on the region's unique strengths and diversity
  • Be a leading provider of tertiary education
  • Support our region's adaptation to climate change

Our Strategy 2015 was developed through consultation with industry, community and staff and outlines our response to a rapidly changing marketplace. We will use the Strategy to build on our significant strengths and existing relationships with our customers and stakeholders to deliver programs and services.
